3.8. RHEA-2011:1545 — new package: passsync
A new passsync package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Identity Replication.
PassSync is a Windows service that runs on every domain controller. This intercepts clear text password updates and sends them to the directory server running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
PassSync works together with the Windows Synchronization (WinSync) feature of the directory server to keep passwords synchronized between Active Directory (AD) and the directory server running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This enhancement update adds the passsync package to Red Hat Enterprise Identity Replication which is an add-on for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. (BZ#690622)
Users who require password synchronization together with WinSync are advised to install this new package.
