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.

Select the organization object, right click it and click on Trustees of this Object. Then Add the Help Desk Group and assign them the necessary Property rights which you want to. The link below explains which rights are needed for which property.http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/tidfinder.cgi?10021413

Cheers :))

Their's no direct way to do this using NWAdmin. However my company has a product named NWAdmin Light for this porpose. It consists of two programs. The "server" part which does the "jobb" and the client program for the help desk. The "server" has a permanent IP adress. Only occupands of a predifined Role can run the client program and update user acounds. Help Desk users can update password and unlock user accounds. All traffic is monitored and stored in a log file.

First, make sure your tree has the latest ds patches if you are in a mixed 4.x and 5.x tree. Next, assign a group or role object as a trustee of the OU, give it Browse and Inheritable Object Rights. Then, under Selected Properties, give it Compare, Read, Write, Inheritable to the following properties:

Account Locked
Account Reset Time
Incorrect Login Attempts
and Password Management.

Don't confuse Incorrect Login Attempts with Incorrect Login Count, otherwise it won't work. We are using this exact configuration in a Mixed NW 4.11 (SP 8a) and NW 5.0 (SP 5) tree with both types of servers in the replica ring with no problems whatsoever. Good luck..
