Funny Incident With User Passwords
A few days ago, we were pretty much done deploying Deltek Vision, but we weren’t done our password synchronization solution yet. We needed to get the accounting group working in Vision, so we decided we could just have the half-dozen people come into my office, and enter their passwords into iManager. I got iManager logged into eDirectory as an administrator user, went to the Set Universal Password page, and then called in the first accounting lady.
As I wrote previously, I recently got a “Das Keyboard”, which is a nice clicky keyboard that has no labels on any of the keys.
I asked the lady from accounting to enter her password twice. She looked at my keyboard and went “uhh…” at which point I went “Oh crap!” We had to move our password setup queue to another machine.
