4. Configuring Request Processor servers

Configure settings for Request Processor servers in the Server document and in a Configuration Settings document in the Domino directory.

About this task

Complete this procedure for each Request Processor server in the Domino domain.

Request Creators and Request Processors can share the same Configuration Settings document or use separate ones. If they use separate ones, best practice is to use the same Active Directory Password Sync settings.


  1. Identify the server as a Request Processor in its Server document:
    1. Open the Server document for the Request Processor in the Domino directory.
    2. Select the Server Tasks - > > Active Directory Password Sync tab.
    3. In the Password Sync processing role field, select Request Processor.
    4. Optional: in the Password Sync requests database path and filename field, optionally specify a path and file name for the Active Directory Password Change Request database on this server. If you leave this blank, the database is created in the data directory with the file name adpwsync.nsf.
  2. Open the Configuration Settings document in the Domino directory that the Request Processor uses and select the Active Directory Password Sync tab.
  3. Complete the Global settings:
    Domino password types to sync Select one of the following options:
    • Select Notes ID to sync only passwords for Notes IDs in the ID vault
    • HTTP Password to sync only HTTP passwords in the directory
    • HTTP and Notes ID to sync both types of passwords.
    Note: To sync passwords to Notes IDs, the Request Processor servers require password reset authority to the ID vault.
    Request expiration time (minutes) Specify the amount of times in minutes after a request is created to allow the request to be processed. When the period expires, requests are deleted. Default is 365 minutes.
    Request storage database managers Specify the users who can access the Password Change Request database.
    Note: The Global Settings settings also apply to Request Creator servers that use the same Configuration Settings document.
