We use NotifyLink to sync devices and Groupwise with great satisfaction.

Now I am asking myself if I should not use DS as it is free.

My question is about user authentication.

With Notifylink, users do not need to put their LDAP password when setting up a device as they get from the Admin an authentication code. NLES is trusted on Groupwise system.

What about DS? I read on the doc that a user need its LDAP password to setup the account. But our security policy enforce users to change their password each 60 days. So I believe that helpdesk will get thousand of calls about locked account even if DS is trusted by GW?

Is that correct?

Thanks in advance.
