Problem
The OSC SIP password is needed to log on (register) to the Microsoft© Office Communication Server. Any OCS client either Microsoft's © Office Communicator or snom IP-Phones has to use the same password. The security rules of most OCS deployments
1. allow only 3 wrong attempts for entering the password before the OCS account (or even the Windows User account) will be blocked
2. demand frequent renewals of that password (usually 3 months)
Since most of the users use Microsoft's © Office Communicator AND IP-Phones a method is required to update the OCS account password on both clients. This article describes convenient ways to solve this issue:
