8.10 Changing Smart Card Login Password on Expiry

In eDirectory mode when the user logs in using NESCM (Novell Enhanced Smart Card Method) and the user password is expired, SecureLogin detects the expired password and changes automatically on behalf of the logged in user. To enable this, update the registry settings:

  1. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Protocom\SecureLogin.

  2. Create a new DWORD value ChangePasswordOnExpiry.

  3. Set this value to 1.

NOTE:This feature is supported only with SecureLogin installed in eDirectory Novell Client mode without selecting Novell SecretStore Client.

The ChangePasswordOnExpiry feature does not work with complex eDirectory password policy settings in SecureLogin.
