Event ID: 0 Source: MSDSS

Source
Level
Description
Session (<value>): {<GUID>}

The password for user "O=ORG/OU=MSDSTEST/OU=T­estOu2/CN=<user3" i not available for synchronization. A password has NOT been generated for the user because a password exists on the user already. If the user changes their Active Directory password the new password will be available for synchronization. The user will be forced to change their password at next logon.

This problem was related to the "Store Passwords Using Reversible Encryption" policy setting. Although I was unable to find documentation of this, the installation of MSDSS appears to edit the Default Domain Policy and adds a policy of "Store Passwords Using Reversible Encryption=Enabled". In this production domain there was already a policy setting this as disabled before MSDSS was installed. Changing this to enabled fixed the password synchronization issues and passwords are now properly synchronized over to eDir.
See ME291134 for a hotfix applicable to Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 1.

ME301542 shows how to migrate users from NetWare to Windows 2000 with the MSDSS tool and One-Time migration.
