Re: Synchronized Passwords accross IBM i & Active Directory



fixed

This is precisely what EIM and Kerberos are about. Dump your IBM i Passwords completely (except for admins) and just use the one in Windows.

If you truly need everyone to be able to sign on independently to IBM i without using any windows workstations then this is likely not the right solution for you.

All,



Looking to create a new process to facilitate password change on our i &
Windows domain. Until recently, we were on a Model 520 that housed two IXS
cards. On one of those cards was our W2K3 DC. With the help of User
Enrollment on the i, we sync'd up account passwords; a user account on the i
took care of performing password maintenance on the DC.



Fast forward to today with a new server and no more Windows integration; I
have to redo that process. Just wondering how other folks have addressed the
problem!
