Environment

Novell SecureLogin
NSL v 6.0.x
Application Definition Scripting
Microsoft Windows 2003
Lotus Notes v 6.5 (other versions not tested)

Situation

On Windows 2003, the Lotus Notes script for Novell SecureLogin will sometimes not behave properly with regard to detecting password changes. Specifically, the Force Password Change dialog is not detected when the user's Lotus Notes password is expired.

Resolution

Windows 2003 has different controls, which causes the shipping script to not work properly. The following script can be used to overcome this problem.
