UNIX to Windows Password Synchronization Service Availability

Updated: December 16, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

UNIX to Windows Password Synchronization Service Availability provides information to help you interpret system messages indicating the operational state of the UNIX to Windows password synchronization service and its availability to synchronize user account passwords to the Windows environment that are changed in the UNIX environment.

When Password Synchronization is configured for UNIX to Windows synchronization, and the synchronization service is available, passwords that are changed on UNIX hosts are synchronized on Windows-based computers and domains. The Password Synchronization pluggable authentication module (PAM) makes this possible by intercepting the password change request on the UNIX host, encrypting the password, and then sending the password change request to the Password Synchronization service running on the Windows-based computers with which it is configured to be synchronized.

The UNIX to Windows Password Synchronization Service is generally available unless the Password Synchronization daemon has failed to initialize.
