Test Universal Password

The program is a LDAP/NMAS utility, that will read the password policy for a user, or all users in a container or sub-tree. Then it will check the universal password, simple password and distributes password status. Optionally it can read display the universal password (depending on the eDirectory setting in a password policy).

You can export the result to a csv-file.

Because the program is an LDAP application, you need to give the ldap server name or IP and port and the credentials for the login. This information is save in a profile, so you can use it the next time. The password can be saved in the profile for easy login, this is less secure!. If the password is not save you will be prompted.

The profiles are save in a central location on the pc, so any other ldap utility of HBWare can use these profiles.

At startup you will get the profile select window like below


Use the right mouse button for add, deleting or modifying profiles.

Select the profile you want to use.

If you create a new profile the program shows the following window:
