Sun Java System Identity Synchronization for Windows 6.0 Deployment Planning Guide

Password Changes on Directory Server

Passwords modified on Directory Servers are propagated through the Identity Manager-Identity Synchronization for Windows deployment as described below:

  1. The user changes the password on Directory Server

  2. The password change is detected by Identity Synchronization for Windows and propagated to Active Directory.

  3. Identity Manager’s pwsync command also detects the password change and propagates it to all other Identity Manager-managed resources, except Directory Servers.
