Novell Identity Manager - Password Synchronization
Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
Novell Identity Manager Driver - Active Directory
IDM 3.5 added functionality for 64-bit versions of Windows and the
calls to manipulate filters that work with 32-bit and 64-bit
versions of Windows 2003 do not work with Windows 2000.
The current work-around is to use the Password Synchronization applet from IDM 3.0.1. This can be found in the %SYSTEMROOT%\system32 directory on the Windows server and is a .cpl file starting with 'PassSync'. Copying this file from the 3.0.1 installation into the same directory in the 3.5 installation will prevent this Access Denied error and allow the filters to be configured properly. Besides adding 64-bit functionality the applet has not changed significantly since 3.0.1 so using this should not have any adverse affects.
This has been resolved in IDM 3.5.1
