sambaNTPassword only 8 symbols


#1

Hi everyone,
we faced a problem that UCS gives authorization by first 8 symbols of the password stored in the field “sambaNTPassword”.

So, if user has a password of 16 symbols, UCS checks the correctness of just first 8 symbols and ignores the rest of the symbols.

UCS version 4.1

Could you give any ideas how to fix it?

Hi,

could you please describe in detail how you create the passwords and what clients or programs are used to authenticate. When ever possible share screenshots or system outputs/logs (using preformatted text).
The goal should always be that others are able to reproduce the behaviour without guessing.

As far as I know sambaNTPassword usually does not contain the password in cleartext. Its rather storing a hash of the password.

Best Regards,
Dirk
