ADMA password sync reset/change RRS feed

  • Question

  • How do ADMA password sync work ?

    ADMA change password (using old password set the new password)


    ADMA reset (set new password only)

    FIM and PCNS are in source domain and target domain is non-trust domain. For both domain , ADMA is configured.  Can be FIM able to sync password on change in source domain to target domain ?

  • Yes and no trust is necessary. PCNS must be installed on all DCs in the source forest. It grabs the pre-encrypted password at the point of change and sends it to FIM Sync which passes it immediately to the target ADMA. The target ADMA uses it's configured connection account to change the password on the target user. For all this to work you must have a correct join between the source and target users thorugh FIM, and Password Sync correctly configured.

  • Thanks Carol ,

    Just for confirmation , Do ADMA reset the new password on target user without using any old password ?  Is it a password reset using ADMA service account having privilege to reset the password ?

  • It is the ADMA account / so you will need this account to be delegated to perform this operation
