Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m can’t answer about any mechanism for actually causing a password change, though I would expect that it’s possible. (It is programming after all.)

However, an EIM/SSO setup allows for a password change in AD also to be accepted during connection attempts to your AS/400. There is no actual “password” on the AS/400 in this case. It’s simply that a successful network logon provides what’s needed for authentication to the AS/400. The practical result is that changing a password in AD also changes the token/ticket used for the AS/400. “Single Sign On”…

    For Single SignOn you need a piece of software on the iSeries side. I believe POWERTECH which is now under HELPSYSTEMS has one available. However there are a few other software vendors that also make single signon software that does not use the token in AD. One is HItachi that offers the software that encrypts the password and passes the ID and password to the iSeries and other platforms. There is a lot of custom set up required with this solution. Another vendor is www.fastpasscorp.com which does the same thing as Hitachi but is a lot easier to implement and a lot cheaper so they claim. I have not implemented either of these solutions but only started looking at them. Without getting a package solution of some kind, I would not even begin to tackle writing it yourself. Lovemyi
