MSDSS password sync to eDirectory


Marcus Holland

Hi All,

Does anyone know if it's possible to disable the password flowing from AD to eDirectory in MSDSS 5.03 SP2?

We've just implemented AD & found that when MSDSS sets the eDirectory password, eDirectory automatically expires the password (expiry date set to 02-Jan-1992 12:00:00). This is "apparently" normal behaviour, when another users sets a password (not for the user themselves). Because MSDSS is running as another supervisor user, this happens EVERYTIME MSDSS pushes a password to eDirectory. Unfortunately we didn't pick this up in any testing.

Any ideas on how to solve this? Does anyone how to turn this behaviour off in eDirectory?

Otherwise, MSDSS works like a charm!!! Shame it's not a little more "tweakable".... We're looking at moving solely to AD, but that's some time away yet.

Thanks in advance for any help.
