You try setting a password from IdM to an MS Active Directory Server this fails


We will detail how to check why a password may not be set successfully in the LDAP Directory Server.

Checking errors

When setting any password in IdM and provisioning to connected repositories the MX_ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD attribute must be filled in order to initiate provisioning. If you use the standard provisioning framework and Password provisioning is enabled on the identity store then this ocurs automatically. If you are developing your own tasks or jobs then this should be noted. Secondly ensure that SSL is enabled between the idM application and the Active Directory Server.

Always check the repository plugin task job log that will be generated when setting a password. If SSL is not enabled then the Active Directory server may respond with the error

operation:javax.naming.OperationNotSupportedException: [LDAP: error code 53 - 0000001F: SvcErr: DSID-031A120C, problem 5003 (WILL_NOT_PERFORM), data 0].

(in this case Windows 2008 server)
