Re: [Fedora-directory-users] Windows Sync



Paolo,

Thanks for the explanation.  I understand why the passwords aren't being
populated in AD, it's just the difficult task of asking all users to
reset their password so that it can be synced over to AD.  We already
have a web-based page that allows the user to reset their password, so
no worries!
