Password Change Notification Service

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Microsoft Password Change Notification Service (PCNS) [1] enables synchronization of password changes in Active Directory to Microsoft Identity Integration Server (MIIS 2003), ILM 2007 and FIM 2010 or the Microsoft Enterprise Single Sign-On Service (ENTSSO). These components simplify password management in organizations with multiple user Digital identity repositories.

Implementation Requirements[edit]

The Password Change Notification filter and service components must be installed on all Domain Controllers in an Active Directory domain that is synchronizing with the configured targets. If the Password Change Notification Service is not installed and running on a domain controller, then any password changes that originate on that domain controller will not be synchronized


Microsoft Operations Manager MOM (System Center Operations Manager) Pack is available to establish monitoring of the events thrown by PCNS[2]
