Netwaare Rights to only change the Passw

By james.rocchino ·
I am trying to find a way to allow my help desk access in NWAdmin to all users in the tree to only allow the help desk to change the password and unlock users.

You can give users access to change password through "Selected Properties". Don't give them supervisor rights it won't work down through the system but give them all other rights that will do it.

In order to give the rights like you stated you have to make sure that you have a pure NW5 replica ring. That means that you do not have a NW4 server participating in the replica ring.

TID #2949161 "Min DS rights for NDS User Pwd/Login settings"from Novell details the exact steps needed to set this up.

Hope this helps.

We are using a freeware utility called N4PASS (www.NetWareFiles.com). This was created by a former Novell engineer specifically for helpdesk user administration. The helpdesk can view user account information on the full Netware 4.x tree and 'reset' passwords. The admin can set password resets to specified, random or datafile value. Full logging. Additional capabilities are reset intruder lockout, grace logins, and group membership changes. N4PASS is an NLM that runs with an embedded UID and there is a Win interface for the helpdesk.

Grant the necessary rights to selected properties that involve passwords and intruder lockout (there's several of them). Don't grant Supervisor or Add self.

Selected properties aren't inherited pre-NetWare 5, so if you're on a prior version you've got a lot of work ahead of you.

In NW, using NDS, you can create a User Role for a container, and grant the Role specific permissions for the members of the container.

After doing this, you assign the users and/or groups who are to have these rights to the Role. Very clean, very fast, very effective.
