Pasdword synchronisation AD---》 OIM


We have synchronisation project set betwee OIM and Active Directory.

We have some AD accounts with non empty passwords but  the corresponding CentralPassdwords in Person table are empty.

No idea if the passwrd field in ADSAccount is empty or not.

Any way to update CentralPassword with the ones in AD?


  • I think you mix-up automatic password sync from AD, doable by a PCA (Password Capture Agent), and beeing able to sync existing passwords from AD. If the latter one would be possible, this would be a reall mess. For the first one search for Password Capture Agent or Password Synchronization.

    In addition, in Person.CentralPassword the password will only be stored until it has been synced to the target system.
