Caching mode password change

Hi All,
We run an ldap system to sync passwords across applications, edirectory included.
We have found a groupwise user running in caching mode. Due to password policy the his edirectory password was updated.
Groupwise failed to update its password as its in caching mode, groupwise had to be switched to online mode to allow the new
password to be updated. Then switched back to caching mode.
This seems to be a bit odd, I would think groupwise client would be able acknowledge the password change regardless of which
mode its in.

Groupwise 2014 R2.

You would think so, but given how caching mode is a remote mode where
you authenticate to it, then it syncs up, this makes it much harder to
handle such changes.
This sounds like a good idea for the idea portal at

Re: Caching mode password change

Hi Julian,

Please confirm if the user on first login to the caching mailbox entered their old password and then waited for the sync to happen?
