    Hi,

     

    The Windows Domain Services connector and the Windows Proxy connector both manage Windows accounts.

     

    Use the Windows Domain Services connector to update the password of Active Directory accounts. This PAM connector uses the LDAP or LDAPS interface to Active Directory to update account passwords.

     

    Use the Windows proxy connector to manage the Active Directory and local Windows accounts, as well as the passwords for Windows services and scheduled tasks. This PAM connector uses the Windows APIs to make updates to the account, services and scheduled tasks passwords.
