Password Registratoin Issue with Secondary Account RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    Our configuration is as follows:

    All users have a normal user account.  They are granted a second account for administrative services.  Is there a way to register for the password registration while logging on as the normal user?   The password reset page has the option to use another account but the password registration does not?

    Thanks for your help?

  • No, I don't think so - they will have to log on with their administrative account if it exists as account in FIM and then do a registration.

    However here is a little concept - why use password reset for these administrative accounts?  If they can log on to standard account you can enable them to mark these administrative account with some additional flag to initiate password reset for them and deliver new password to standard user's mailbox. 

    Just an idea - I did it in similar way few times with good result.

  • assuming u are talking about R2, then u can simply launch the browser as the administrative account and go to the password registration portal
