Environment

SecureLogin
NSL7.0.3
NSL8
Installed in LDAP mode

Situation

eDir password is not changed when the Windows password is changed
Domain password is not changed when eDirectory password is changed
Ctrl-Alt-Del Change password does not change both eDir and Windows passwords
$Syspassword shows old value after password change

Problem only occurs with SecureLogin installed in LDAP mode

Resolution

Apply NSL7.0.3 HF6 or newer, and add the following registry setting:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login\LDAP
SyncLDAPPassword - Dword (0 or 1 )

0 - no sync is performed
1 - synchronize the login password with ldap server.

Note:  It might also be necessary to add the value "SyncDelay" in the same registry location,
a REG_DWORD set  to any non-zero number as described in TID 7013468.
