Good to know. Cool !
Hi Madhan,

I'm an entitled customer to this edition. We have AD+Exchange, OES2017.1 with eDirectory 8.8
We have been struggling with passwords on both directories since years and we are evaluating to synchronize just AD-eDir passwords **only**
Will this scenario be covered with this license? (since we also have Exchange) or do we need to acquire an special connector/driver?
Thanks!
Hi Mcando
With the IDM BE you can synchronize eDir and AD passwords. Exchange should be getting it's password from AD so you should be fine there. I had a large customer do exactly this and reduce their helpdesk password calls by 80%.

Note that you can now also SSPR (Self-Service Password Reset) as part of the OES IDM BE entitlement - https://www.novell.com/communities/coolsolutions/open-enterprise-server-2018-goes-gold/. This means not only will your passwords be synchronized but users can also reset them themselves should they forget their password.

Hi lothar, thank you very much!
Hello,

I would like to know whether of not IDM 4.6 BE is entitled with OES 2015 SP1??

Thanks in advance,


Ricard
It is. IDM BE entitlement is for OES licenses under maintenance and normally not tied to versions of OES. System requirements of IDM may require a specific version of OES or eDirectory, but does not impact the entitlement as such.
