Shared Services Native Directory Passwords

Some of my users who are on the a/d cannot connect to essbase +/- 10% have this problem, and as a result native accounts were created.

my question is: is it possible to select certain users on shared services native directory to force them after a certain period time to change the password

if it is possible a brief set to follow will be great

thank you

The native accounts are pretty basic and do not support forced changes of passwords.

What is preventing setup of the +/- 10% of users? Do you not have an active directory where that set of users exist? Is this an attempt to allow a set of users which have a lot of MSAD's and are not in a common one access -- if this is the case you may wan to look at setting up an external LDAP or even OID and putting that set somewhere you can have a more robust directory.

Hi John
thanks for the update.
our company holds more than 23 000 staff, and the domain accounts are controlled by the IT department and we have 21 doimains and 1 main domain, shared services is used to run off the active directory- main domain, i have tried to compare two users who can authenticate to two users who cannot authenticate in shared services
the one property i found that is common in all 4 is that all 4 are members of the internetuser group.

is there are way to set up shared services to target the interenetuer group first and then the domain

alternatively, could i set up the shared services to scan the entire directory of domains (i.e. all 22) instead of listing each domain in shared services i know the concern is that if a user is linked to two domain and has different passwords shared services will not authenticate
