Re: Clear ldap password histroy

Are you referring to the Password History field in the SM operator file?


If you want to disable it permanently for all users, there is a checkbox in the System Information Definition record.

 - System Navigator: System Administration -> Base System Configuration -> Miscellaneous -> System Information Record

 - Access the Password Standards tab within the Passwords tab

 - Uncheck the field labeled: Keep Password History

 - Save changes and logout


If you want to clear the field for an individual user, consider using the RAD Debugger in the Windows client.

 - Login as a SysAdmin and access the relevant operator record

 - Open the RAD Debugger (Window menu -> Show View -> Other... -> RAD Debugger)

 - Execute the following command: x cleanup(pwd.history in $L.filed)

 - Save changes to the operator record

Sorry, LDAP running on UNIX for UNIX server logins.

Re: Clear ldap password histroy

The password history for a user defined in LDAP will be stored in the LDAP Server so the procedure will depend on the LDAP Server you are using.

My quick fix. I deleted my account and re-added it. It then let me put the old password back.
