NT and Netware Passwords

By iain.hamilton ·
I have a system with netware and NT4 servers how do I get the NT server to update the passwords when a client responds to a password change request from the novell server.

NT and Netware Passwords

by erikdr In reply to NT and Netware Passwords

Apparently your system happens to work because the users have exactly the same password on NT as on NDS. That's lucky if it works, but indeed very difficult to synchronise.
The 'best' option, but most complex to install, would be NDS for NT. Then the NT4 servers have no own passswords, all authenticate to NDS though the NT apps are fooled to think they talk to a NT domain.
The option most directly doing what you ask is Novell DirXML. It exports the NDS settings to Microsoft, including passwords if you want. It is positioned as a NDS - W2K replication but AFIK can as well replicate towards NT4.

Hope this helps,

PS Microsoft also seems to have a two-way password sync tool between NT and NDS, and it might be cheaper than Novells...

Need to have client32 v 4.71 or +
The user_id must be the same in Netware and in the domain.
Frist time logging (asummed different password for both environment)
Logon into nds, whem prompted for the Domain validation, put the right windows password and check the Sync NDS password with NT passsword check box (message varies from client32 to client32 versions..)
Since this succesful login, your windows password (you type in) was changed to match the nds password (you type first!)
