Environment
IDM 3.6
eDir 8.8.3
Production Tree <==> Identity Tree <==> Active Directory

When I change a password in my Production Tree and it is synchronized to
my Identity Tree, if the password is the same it is not set. I was just
wondering how I could prevent this "Optimize Password" from happening.
My issue is that on rare occasion, the password in Active Directory is
out of sync and if I change the password in the Production Tree and it
is the same as that in the Identity Tree, it is not synchronized to AD.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
....Nick
