does anyone else had this problem:
a domain user changes his windows password under Windows 7, EEPC setting is set to "set the EE password to match the windows password". Unfortunately it does not work. The EE password remains the same (old) password.
machine options set:
Client: Windows 7 32-bit
EEPC v 5.2.4
Thanks for any help!
I have several workstations with Windows 7 and Endpoint Encryption enabled. Below are the seetings I have in-place for 5.2.4.
Require logon to Endpoint Encryption
Attempt automatic windows logon
Automatically logon as pre-boot user
Endpoint encryption logon component always active
Set Endpoint Encryption password to Windows password
Must match Windows user name
(Require re-logon to Endpoint Encryption. Had issue with this one and was told by support to disable).
Do not Display previous user name at logon
Disable checking for AutoBoot
Do not lock workstation if no user is authenticated
do not lock workstation if user is disabled
Hope this helps.
I'd like to bump this message in case someone else has seen this and has a fix. Having the exact same issue but running EEPC 5.2.5 on Win 7 (64 bit). Have tried same settings as described in this thread, Alt-Ctrl-Del password change doesn't ever change EEPC password. Ideas?
I thought you'd see an entry for SafeBootNP5 there?
I may be mistaken, but it does not look like you have the option enabled to sync the passwords, or perhaps something took it out of the registry?
Is the client definitely 32-bit? I have seen an issue with the Network Provider dll not self-registering at install time on 64-bit clients. You could test this by registering the NP by hand with the command "regsvr32 SbNp.dll" (no quotes).
That's it!! No, my OS is 64 bit, the original poster in this thread was using 32 bit. Registered it and it works like a champ. Thanks!
To close this, I heard this issue is resolved in 5.2.8, it was not considered significant enough for a mention in the release notes though.
