    novell's response

    John,

    This was the response I got from Novell, this does not help my situation
    but maybe it will help you. These solutions still do not prompt the user
    when their password expires.


    Novell Response:
    eGuide does allow for a self-management using LDAP. As an
    administrator you can setup eGuide for self administration and when a
    user logs they can select a field called "edit information" and will
    receive a screen where the "Change Password" feature is displayed. They
    will have to provide their old password in order to set a new password
    so it does not allow for situations where users may have forgot their
    password. eGuide is simply an LDAP browser so there is no real-time
    monitoring which would allow for a notification to be sent to users as
    passwords are about to expire.

    Another option is Virtual Office, which is a web based collaboration
    portal. Virtual Office has the option to manage eDirectory passwords or
    Universal Passwords. The management of eDirectory passwords works the
    same as it does in eGuide (user must provide old password to set a new
    password) but the Universal Password feature extends this by offering an
    option for forgotten passwords. I do believe if you are using Universal
    Passwords and you login to Virtual Office under a grace login you will
    be notified that the password must be changed and the number of logins
    remaining. The user can then choose to reset their password through
    this browser interface.

    Universal Passwords is an extension of NMAS and information for all
    three products can be found at:
