The IBM AS/400 server, renamed the eServer iSeries/400, is a mid-range server designed for use in small businesses and in departments within large enterprises. It has now been improved to work well in distributed networks. Having different passwords in Active Directory and IBM servers increases the likelihood of users forgetting one or even both of the passwords. End users calling the IT team to reset their passwords will increase the IT team’s workload.
The most simple solution is to deploy an Active Directory password synchronization tool that syncs the changes made to Active Directory passwords with IBM servers. ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus provides real-time password sync for IBM AS/400 and several other on-premises and cloud applications. This allows you to change passwords simultaneously across all applications.
Users have to remember a number of passwords in a corporate setup. With different password complexity requirements in each application, remembering a different set of passwords is a hassle for both users and administrators alike.
When users reset their lost Windows Active Directory passwords with ADSelfService Plus, the new password is automatically synced with their IBM accounts. Users can log on to the IBM servers with their Windows passwords.
This way, users are freed from having to remember a multitude of passwords for their different accounts.
An additional advantage of using this tool is that users can change or reset just their IBM passwords without changing their AD password. ADSelfService Plus provides users an option to reset or change the password of their Windows AD environment or all connected applications. This enables users to change only their IBM machine passwords without having to change the password of their AD environment or any of the other connected cloud or on-premises applications.
