Hello all,

I am working in a test environment attempting to import user accounts from a Sun One Directory Server into Active Directory.  When I do the import it resets the users password to a randomly generated one.  Does anyone have any experience with this and perhaps some insight on how to perform the import without resetting the password?

The way encrypted passwords are stored in Sun One Directory server is totally incompatible with AD. So it's actually impossible to import the user's password.

So the password isn't actually "reset" but a random password is assigned to avoid ending up with users without password.

There's no way around this problem, we investigated this problem intensively.

SInce we are estrablishing a synch between the directory containers using ISW, is the random password that is generated when creating the AD account then synched back to the Sun Directory Server? Or, will there be a password mis-match?

I think that if you force your users to change their password in windows, the new password wil be synced to both directories and stay synced from there on.

(we used the sync only once to migrate users, not to establish a permanent sync, so I don't know how well this works).
