Synchronizing MS Active Directory User Password Changes to Oracle Directory Server Used with Convergence (Doc ID 2249732.1)

Last updated on APRIL 07, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Convergence - Version 3.0 to 3.0.1 [Release 3.0]
Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.3 to 11.1.1.7.3 [Release 11gR1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

As Oracle Communications Unified Communications Suite supports only Oracle Directory Server (ODSEE) for user authentication, in a heterogeneous setup where both Microsoft Active Directory (MS-AD) and ODSEE User Directories are actively used, there is a need to synchronize user password changes from MS-AD to ODSEE. While other parameter/values can be synchronized easily, there is a challenge in synchronizing passwords as MS-AD and ODSEE use different encryption algorithms.


This document describes a method on how such a password change synchronization can be achieved.
