Thing is, it's a PeopleSoft app. The users basically have NOTHING until
they connect to PeopleSoft at which point they become SYSADM and can do
their work.


The grand vision is some day everything will go through "Password
Courier" where you go, change your password, and everything is magically
updated. We're getting there, but right now it just does network,
mainframe, and web pages.

ah Audit has spoken. I assume that your organisations general password
policy is not to allow a change if the password was previously changed
in the last 2 days, and that this is just playing catchup? The reason I
ask is that it seems odd to me. I can't imagine how many times I've
changed a password prior to 8am one morning because I was asked to, had
to fight complexity requirements - got it changed and then been unable
to recall it the following morning. At least in your organisation I
could go home and bill the lost day to audit. 



        I think I heard 10G works with active directory, maybe even
RACF, and if that was in place, this would be a non issue.


what do you mean by works with? If its just a matter of authenticating
windows users you can do this in , at least. 9i upwards.
