Password synchronization doesn’t mean that the two passwords in sync are same.?

What does syncronising the two different passwords mean? For example: What does the folowing paragraph mean? "All three groups of users may now receive an error or be prompted for a password. In this case, the user should enter their network password (the one they use when they first log onto the network with their desktop PC). This will insure their LDAP (network) password and their cached SAP password are in sync. LDAP passwords expire every 90 days and require re-setting at that time." Does it mean that the LDAP and SAP passwords would then be same? Surely not because user has to change SAP password. So, does syncronising passwords here means that both passwords would be required to be reset at the sametime in the future (after 90 days).

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

I believe that syncronising 2 different passwords means that if you change one of them, then the other will be changed to the new value. If you change either the LDAP or SAP password, then the other will be changed also (althought, there may be a time delay – a few minutes up to a few hours I suspect).
