Hi IDM grugs,
I am a newer to work on the IDM application. I read several Forum about this error. It seems their solution is not really applicable to us.
We have a new project to use IDM (Version 3.6) Remote Loader driver provissioning Exchange 2003 accounts.
After we created the driver, we try to add user objects to Active Directory. But we always have the following trace error 'Password set failed' message.
We have been trouble shooting this issue for long time. We had taken following measurements to control this error. But until today, this error is still showed in the trace as following.
Basically, we had been done following things:
(1) Controlled the 'CN' attribute. Changed it from synchronization to ignore in the Filter.
(3) Provided right password format regarding the the AD password restriction.
(4) Updated the default synchronization attributes mapping with the specific application related attributes mapping.

After these things had been done, we can create a normal AD user account (Before that user's accounts were created in AD always with a disable (a Red X) mark).
