Directory and Resource Administrator 7.0 SP1


'User must change password at next logon' option is not automatically checked by default when resetting a password in the Password Reset Wizard. 

The issue is due to the behavior of the Account and Resource Management where the User Must Change Password at Next Logon flag in the password reset wizard is associated with the current state of this flag instead of being set to on by default. 


This issue is addressed in NetIQ Directory and Resource Administrator and Exchange Administrator version 7.0 SP1 Hotfix 42853

Hotfix 42853 corrects the following user interface issues:

  • On the Reset Password window, the  'User must change password at next logon' option is  now checked by default. 
  • Corrects an issue when viewing the properties of a Microsoft Exchange 5.5 mailbox. Previously, DRA would display the Container name property on the Advanced tab incorrectly if the mailbox was not in the default Recipients container. This hotfix corrects the issue and displays the complete  LDAP path for mailboxes.  
  • Corrects an issue involving Microsoft Windows NT accounts with UPN names utilizing all capital letters.  You can now enable these user accounts using  the Accounts and Resource Management console. 
  • Provides the ability to specify a custom email type when creating a new email address. Previously, this functionality was available through the Web console. This hotfix provides the same functionality to the Delegation and Configuration and Accounts and Resource Management consoles.

Note: This hotfix requires DRA 7.0 SP1.

To install this hotfix, run the DRA70001_Hotfix42853.msi file on each computer where you installed the DRA user interfaces.

This hotfix modifies the NetIQ.DRA.Console.Accounts.dll on console computers. By default, this file is located in the Program Files\NetIQ\DRA folder.
