Using NetWare 6.5 SP7 and IDM 3.5.0.16285 along with the Edustructures SASIxp SIF Agent...

New users (students) are being provisioned in eDirectory but, seemingly, without a password. I've modified the IDM driver to use a preset password but that's not working. When I try to login as one of the IDM-created users, it doesn't even register as a login event and increment the "failed logins" counter. If I reset the NDS password in C1, it works great.

We're not using Universal Password (our clients haven't all be updated with the NMAS stuff) so it should be pretty simple. I did run across this error:

I'm speculating that the -610 error (illegal DS name) is generated because the none of the CNs listed are the FQDN. Instead of being "ETes9517.students.FHS.FCUSD" it's only using "ETes9517." Then again, I could be totally wrong :-)

Any thoughts/help would be appreciated.
