Password reset using FIM RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    As per  my knowledge, FIM can be used to reset the password only on Active directory. Is there any option or possibility to reset the password on the below target system.





    If yes, kindly suggest how to achieve it.

  • Self service password reset can only reset password in Active Directory. But you can still use PCNS to catch the change in AD and reset it in any other system.

    To some systems management agents with this ability are ready (LDAP, SQL), to other - you would have to create own management agent. In the cases above - it is possible using PCNS to inform management agent about password change but there are no out of the box management agents for McAfee, Pointsec or AS400.

    But as long they have any ability to change password (either via web service, script or other request) you are able to create management agent that would reset it.
