Global Changes to Password Restrictions


We are in the process of joing a WAN and they require length 8 minimum
as well as one cap and one number minimum. Our current restrictions
for all users was just length of 6. Short of editing everyone, is
their a way to change each users properties to match this criteria. I
set properties on OU, but suspect that will only affect future users.

To do this, you'll need Universal Password. The traditional NDS password is case
insensitive, and doesn't have a "require one number" feature. Universal Password
has both of these.

Impliment UP, put these in the policy, and apply it to the top of your tree.

For NDS password, you have to change each user object. Use Shift-Click to select
them, then use Properties of Multiple Objects to change them all. Or use the JRB
Utilities (Setrest.exe), or Uimport, or ICE, or ldapsearch/ldapmodify. Lots of
ways to do this.

Not even that much. Changing the password minimum length attribute on a
container object affects the container object itself, not the objects in it.

Not going to do you any good for case-sensitivity and numeric requirement

David:
Well I change the minimum length and had to change it back. Wehn they
tried to change their password they kept getting "Old password is
incorrrect". so I'll change the length after everyone changes their
passwords. Thanks for th input, selecting mutltiple users was a huge
benefit that I didn't know about.
