Re: admin's password case insensitive

If you login with NDS password the password is (as it always has been)
case insensitive. You need to login with Universal Password (UP), meaning
with some mechanism that uses UP, in order to use a case-sensitive
password. For example, login via LDAP (usually) defaults to using NMAS
these days, which then will be case-sensitive. If you use the Novell/OES
client then that will also use UP normally, as will iManager.

There is an option when you configure a UP policy that allows you to
disable NDS password, but it is not usually recommended since it breaks
older clients which cannot do UP yet.

Good luck.

Do we have many non-UP clients left these days? I mean Netx.exe and
older Client32 with bad NMAS clients. But hopefully by now, most should
be gone?

Be interesting to test via LDAP since that should always be UP first?

Timing matters. Did you reset the password, after changing the policy?
Also, only UP is case sensitive, so if that is not enabled in the
policy, it won't be. But I will assume ou ddid that.

Don’t forget there is an environment variable you need to set (should be
set for you but worth checking).

As Geoffrey and Aaron have said. Won’t help an iota if your user doesn’t
have Universal Password policy applied (and password set afterwards).
