Provisioning is working - put pointing it tot he root of our domain
finds probably 75% of the users.
Of which I seem to be able to reset those discovered... The rest are
just 'not there'... (even though they have registered for SSO) any
further ideas?

Thanks again very much for your help with this mate, cool little app!

Hi James

this error looks like either you haven't got the provision services
module installed with your default password manager install on the PM
Server. This is essential for the helpdek utility to work. If you have
got this then it will either be certificate related or permisisons
related to the PM server - specifically the provisioning module. You can
add the proviosioning module even after you have configured PM, you just
have to goto to add/remove and modify the components installed. No harm
will be done to your existing environment.

To see if the service is running correctly, goto to a web browser within
the domain and type
https://servicemachinefqdn/MPMService/ProvisionSvc.asmx in the address
bar. you should get a repsonse. If you get an eror then this is where
the issue exists.

The PMHelpDesk.exe.config must be configured prior to using this
 This file contains the following:
- the location of the password manager services
- the Fully Qualified Domain Name of the Active Directory
- the Root OU in the Active Directory that contains the PM users

    Notes on this Configuration file
    Change the following values to suit your environment:
      - key="PMHelpDesk.ProvisionServices.ProvisionSvc" 
        Set this value to the location of the password manager services
      - key="PMHelpDesk.ADHelper.ADLookup"
        Set this value to the FQDN. This value can be left blank.  
        eg. value="mydomain.local"/>
        eg. value=""/>
      - key="PMHelpDesk.ADHelper.OULookup"
        Set this value to the Root OU in the Active Directory that
        the PM users. 
        This value can be left blank. 
        eg. value="myStaff"/>  
        (This would be viewed as OU="mystaff",DC="mydomain",DC="local")
        eg. value=""/>
