If the eDir password and the local Windows Vista password are out of sync, the Novell client prompts the user that the local password is incorrect and will then give the user an opportunity to sync the local user password, once they enter the correct local windows password (as it should). All accounts are correctly named eDir user = itslab, local user = itslab

However the password does not get set to the Novell eDir password, no errors are indicated (have not looked in the windows security log yet). What does happen is, that the local password is completely removed (meaning it was changed, but it was changed to nothing and is now blank). We have verified this by logging in computer only with a blank password after the initial sync was attempted.

Password changes do work as long as the passwords match prior to the change. Changing your password from the ctrl-alt-del change password method works as advertised. Passwords that are expired and require the user to specify a new password after a successful login works.

Only passwords that are not sync'd have this problem. The problem appears to be syncing the passwords from the initial login prior to desktop being loaded.

Tested SP1 and IR1 both clients have this problem.

Novell client options:
Show login Windows password synchronization option = on
Login Windows password synchronization option default = on
Windows password synchronization = on

Submitted a SR via the web today.

Has anyone else seen this or tested this?
