Synchronizing local domain password
Posted on 2004-08-04
we have an application where XP notebook and XP workstation users could change their domain password (and all other associated passwords). The application sends the password change request to a server program and that does the global password change. However, the local domain account still has the old password. To get the local password changed also, we are locking the screen by calling LockWorkStatíon() and the user has to unlock using the new domain password, thus updating their local account.
However, if the user unlocks using their old password , the workstation/notebook password differs from that of all other places, what will give problems. So, we are looking for a better solution.
Best would be, if we don't have to lock the workstation but could somehow force synchronizing of the local domain password. Note, the users always are connected to the domain, while the application is running.
