EEPC 7 Initial Password

Jump to solution

Currently setting up EEPC on 20 or so machines, have encryption running on my test machine and have noticed a couple of things I'm hoping I can sort before rolling out.

I've set up an AD group called eepcrec and added that at the group level, it contains a few user accounts and will be used to recover in the event a user forgets their password.  I've set SSO on and update eepc password when AD password is changed and I've updated policies on the laptop and left it for a while.

The problem is when I log in as one of the recover users for the 1st time I have to put the temp password in (12345) and then the actual user password.  Is there any way to have EEPC pull the actual password from AD from the start, otherwise I'm going to have to log in to all 20 machines with all the recovery users and set the password.  Hoping I'm missing a setting as I would have thought ePO would just pull the account/ passwords and push them to EEPC on the machines.

Thanks for any assistance

Hello Gerry,

The EEPC user and passwords are distinct from the Windows user and password.

The Active Directory information is solely used to gather the username format to be used in EEPC.

In summary the application does not get the passwords from AD and you will have to initialize the EEPC users.

Thanks for the info, just to clarify though once I've set the users up and set their EEPC password to the same as their AD one, when they change their AD password this will sync with EEPC provided I have that option set in the EEPC policy.  Main password change here would be when their AD password expires and they're forced to change it, I'm hoping that type of change will replicated to EEPC and not just a manual ctrl+alt+del change,

Thanks

yes - all password changes made on an eepc protected endpoint can be captured.
