i have a problem regarding SFU attribute and password synchronisation.
We already have in place 2 DC with W2K3 R2 with SFU and passwod synchronisation installed on. Every user have his own ID in Active Directory.
When user change his windows password, it is automatically change on our aix node (we have 3 or 4 aix server who are NIS client)
This is working for a long time.
But My problem is : we have installed 2 news DC with w2K8 r2 and SFU + assword synch.
But with these 2 dc, it seems that the password sync is not working. It is not changing our aix server (NIS Client).
I can see this error in event viewer : ID 8245.= /// Password propagation failed. Either default encryption key is configured or no UNIX hosts are configured to propagate passwords.
Do you an idea?

Make certain that Password Synchronization has been configured in accordance with guidelines in Best practices for Password Synchronization. Password policies in both the Windows and UNIX environments should have similar restrictions, and minimum requirements for character length and complexity of passwords should be as closely matched as possible.
More information please refer to below links:
Event ID 8245 — Windows to UNIX Password Synchronization Service -- Run-time Issues
Best practices for Password Synchronization
Hope it helps.

unfortunatly i already read these articles.
Our password policies are managed with GPO. And it is working for our 2 others DC in W2K3.
I will continue....
Thanks a lot
