Windows Identity Manager for Unix Issue

Last Modified: 2015-03-10
We have a Redhat enterprise 5.8 system and windows 2008r2
we have the Microsoft Identity Manager for Unix installed and configured.
We have a test redhat system with users already populated.
We are using MD5 and shadow passwords.
The Identity Manager for Windows under the NIS is set for MD5 also
We have verified the Enryption keys and have configured the sso.conf to match as:
  Use Shadows=1 with the proper folder for the /etc/shadow file
NIS is off
I restart the ssod and verify it is running
We change a password on the Windows side, the Windows application log says it was changed and passed to the Unix side
The logs on the unix side say it was successfully changed but we still cannot log in.
I manually change the password on the unix side and I can log in fine.

Any idea what I could be doing wrong?
