    rvdmast: well spotted I did look through the code the other week.

    I presume using objUser.SetPassword ("NewPassword") would be trying to set the password to the value NewPassword.

    On a bright note about this program, as i havnt tested it for sure as there are other problems im seeing too atm, it looks like SSPR can be used to reset Frogserver VLE passwords also, in a roundabout way....

    @rvdmast: Very well spotteed and wholly correct, those quotes shouldn't be there. Looks like I still have some more proof reading to do ^^;

    @kerrymoralee9280: Does that happen for all users or just specific ones? And what format of usernames are you using?

    Self Service Password Reset And ePortal

    I have been asked to look into password recovery for Facility ePortal. I think the idea is that when staff have forgotten their password for ePortal could use a 'Self Service Password' to get logged on with minimal Network Support staff intervention. Could we use Self Service Password to do this or is there another answer? Is anyone doing something similar but in another way?

    Ideas please.

    Thanks.

    DaveP: we don't use facility eportal so no idea at the moment.

    How and where are users passwords stored in eportal?

    Storage is in a database [I think] Where? I am not sure. I will have a look....

    If it's possible to access this database using iis/asp then it's possible that a new version could be written to reset those details or an extension written to SSPR to facilitate this.

    The problem with that is that it's possible for people to gain access to personal information who shouldn't necessarily have that kind of access when staff leave their computers logged in. I've not used eportal myself so I don't know exactly what staff can and can't do through eportal though so I could be wrong.

    We are now looking at a solution SERCO wrote for the NHS. Here if the user has forgotten the password they can click a link and the details are sent out to the E-Mail account that is stored on ePortal for that member of staff [if you get my drift: It is rather early in the morning]

    On our last network, it worked flawlessly. But on the new'en, it says its changed a password, even though it hasnt?

    I presume the accounts in question don't have "user cannot change password" set?

    A bit more info on your new setup would be good too.

    Thanks,

    Ben

    Its happening globally, to both the new users, and existing ones, and all of them are set so they can change passwords.

    Old setup was one DC doing everything, SSPR on that.
    New setup is 2xDCs, with, iirc, SSPR on one of them.

    Just noticed something, as i wasnt the one who setup SSPR, it has to be on a AD server to work fully doesnt it?
    As ive noticed that its on our IIS...

    Just installing AD-DS on it now, without global cataglogs & DNS, just so its a very basic DC.

    One of the requirements for the program in the readme is AD but I'm not sure if that means it needs to be installed on a DC but that would make sense.

    I have it installed on a DC here and if you had installed on a DC and working at the last place and it's not on a DC at the new place and doesn't work then sounds like a plan to me.

    Ben
