SAP UM : Setting (productiv) password

Hi all,
I'm looking around for a while on forums but I haven't found anything
relevant to solve my issue.

If I understand well, the usual way of setting password from NIM to SAP
with User Management driver consists in
- First, set the initial password
- Then set the productiv password

I was wondering if there is a way to set productiv password in one

Why this question ? Because in a load balanced SAP environment, the
initial password can be set on one server, and the productiv password
can be set on the second, which fails when the replication process is
not finished.
I've got a solution that consists in using a load balanced group of one
SAP server for NIM's updates, and password settings, but It's more a
fallback options than a real solution.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Re: SAP UM : Setting (productiv) password

To the best of my knowledge you are running into SAPs odd security model
here... AIUI Sap does not permit an external source like IDM to set the
password in one shot, it has to be this two stage process where its set
to an initial value first, then the real password you want. So I fear
your workaround may be what you are stuck with since I believe SAP have
always refused to change their security model.
