Want to implement password sync between 2 AD in seperate domains. One AD is used for login purpose to desktops and other is exchange AD for access to mailbox. One AD is in LAN and exchange AD is in WAN. want to implement strict password policy where users have to change the password ones and this should reflect in both domain.

OS : 2003 SP2

Exchange : exchange 2003

Suggest me options whic can be looked into. Thanks in advance

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

There is no password sync options available. You would need to create 2 GPOs (one for each AD environment) and implement those password restrictions.

    I don't think there is anything to sychoronize passwords. Anyways, why do you need to setup an exchange server on different domain? Is this exchange service hosted by another company?

    Thanks for the answers. The exchange is hosted by same company at hosting center. this setup is existing for some time. The DomainA is used as DC in Lan for user authentication when they login to system. The DomainB (Exchange domain) is used for Mail box access We use Outlook for client access. PResently the users have same password in DomainA and DomainB so users need not enter twice the password for login to system and mailbox. My intention is to explore possibility to have password sync between DOmainA and DOmainB so users have option to change password in DOmainA and this would reflect in DomainB also. Any possibilities......

    Why do the users (in DomainA) need to know their passwords in the exchange domain (DomainB)? Within Exchange 2003 (specifically the special Active Directory Users and Computers for Exchange), you can set the user's account in DomainA as the 'Associated external account' for their account on Exchange in DomainB. They can then just use their DomainA credentials to access their mailbox. Though I think that the 2 domains do have to have a trust relationship for this to work.
