Password History in a Replicated Environment
The documentation later tells you how to replicate these attributes:




I'm using this with multi-master replication across 3 servers and works fine. *Just make sure to heed the advice about ensuring the policy is setup the same on all the servers: nt-Managing_the_Password_Policy

The documentation clearly states that password modification history is not replicated including account lockout counters. To me that seems a bit pointless to have if your servers are authenticating against a cluster of 4 machines. There is no guarantee that next time when you change your password that the history will be captured by the same server.

I am sure I am not the only person that has had to deal with this dilemma and am curious about other possible solutions to this problem. The problem being to keep a shared used password between multi masters. I would really appreciate any thoughts or shared expierences in dealing with the limitations of the password policy in a multimaster environment.
