RE: Synchronized Passwords across IBM i & Active Directory



fixed

Last time we tried to use EIM was back on V5R4. That did not end well and we abandoned the process. I think the problem was on the windows admin side. Now we are at V7R1 and have had 100% turnover of the windows admins. Is EIM at V7R1 essentially the same as it was on V5R4?

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!
