Password Changes on Active Directory
Passwords modified on Active Directory are propagated through the Identity Managerand Identity Synchronization for Windows deployment as described
The user resets the password on Active Directory by using the Change Password option
in the Task Manager dialog box of Windows.
Identity Synchronization for Windows detects the change and sets a password invalid flag on the corresponding
user entry in the Identity Synchronization for Windows-managed Directory Server.
The user connects to Directory Server for the password change
to be complete (see Using On-Demand Password Synchronization to Obtain Clear-Text Passwords in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Installation Guide in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Installation
Identity Manager’s pwsync DLL also detects the password change
and propagates it to all other Identity Manager-managed resources, except Directory Servers.
