Resolution

There are a few potential sources of this error.
1. Verify that the Driver is Secutiry Equivalent to the admin user in the tree. This is under the properties of the driver, security equals page.
2. Verify the Server keys are the same on all servers. If they are not, you can get the above errors. TID 3092072 - Verifying and Resolving Tree Key Inconsistencies will walk you through the process of resolving tree key issues.
3.  Verify that Time is synchronized across all servers in the tree.
 
After the above is correct, try setting the password again and see if it syncs across.
 
If you have problems with the steps outlined above contact Novell Support.
