Can you give a bit more information about a) how the Password GCVs in your
AD Driver are configured and b) whether you use Novell's 'Out of the box'
Publisher Command Policies for setting the passwords.

It sort of loosk from your circumstances (including the differnce in behaviour
between iManager and ConsoleOne) that sometimes your systems are only setting
the Public/Private Key "Novell" password and sometimes your systems are setting
both the Universal Password and the Public/Private Key password
