Configuring AD Password Sync Plugin 1.0.3

You can configure the AD Password Sync Plugin 1.0.3 for backwards compatibility as follows:

  1. Install the AD Password Sync Plugin as per the instructions in the OpenIDM Integrator's Guide › Managing Passwords › To Install the Active Directory Password Synchronization Plugin.
  2. Add an idm2Only registry entry under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ForgeRock\OpenIDM\PasswordSync registry key.
  3. Set the new idm2Only registry entry to true. You do not need to restart the domain controller as this change will be picked up dynamically by the AD Password Sync Plugin.
Note

When the idm2Only registry entry is missing (as it is by default) or blank, the AD Password Sync Plugin 1.0.3 will only work with OpenIDM 3.x​.
