Synchronize universal password between two eDirectory trees


Hi,
I'm trying to synchronize passwords between two eDirectory trees in
both directions. I set up universal password on the first tree and
selected "Synchronize NDS Password when Setting Universal Password" and
"Synchronize Distribution Password when Setting Universal Password" in
the password policy. There is no password policy in the second tree.
I checked "Use Distribution Password for Password Synchronization",
"Application accepts passwords" and "Identity Manager accepts
passwords".

When I go to check the password status of the user in the eDir of the
first tree, it says that the password is not synchronized. But in the
second eDir it says that it is synchronized. And I can't log to the
second eDir with this password.

Re: Synchronize universal password between two eDirectory trees


I'm pretty sure that if there is no password policy in tree #2, the
users won't have a universal password set - or even a way to set it. Try
creating a universal password policy in tree #2 that doesn't require any
greater password strength than the current NDS policy, but really it'd
be best to have the password policies match and then have it check
whether the existing NDS password meets the requirements the next time
the user logs in. In any case, the users in tree #2 won't have a
universal password set until the next time they change their password,
so change your test user's password immediately after enabling universal
password and see if its password synchronizes between trees.
