In Clustered Domino environment, User's IDs are configured to update their internet password when Notes password is changed.
When user's Home/Mail server specified in the Location document is down and the user change password of ID file, then "Change HTTP Password in Domino Directory" request is not generated in admin4.nsf of the cluster server and user's internet password will not be updated immediately.
Users should wait till their Home/Mail server becomes available and they should access Home server from the Notes client for adminp request to be generated.
Meanwhile, end-user thinks that thier internet password is also updated and they fail to login through HTTP services using new password set for Notes ID.
This creates inconvenience for user's as they should wait until their Home mail server is available.
Request for Improvement:
Even though the user's Home/Mail server is down, the adminp request should be generated on cluster server's admin4.nsf to make Notes password sync with internet password.
The current workaround is changing the Domino server name in "Home/Mail Server" field in location document.
Once user updates the Home/mail Server field on location document with cluster server name, then the adminp request to update HTTP password is generated in admin4.nsf of cluster server and it will be processed by Admin server.
However, this workaround is troublesome to update Home/mail server name in all user's Notes clients when the primary server is down for several days due to system failiures.
