Cross-referencing blank passwords
When the Cross Reference Blank Password option is selected, BMC Remedy AR System attempts to authenticate through the AREA LDAP Configuration form. Ensure that the user password is set in the AREA LDAP Configuration form and you do not provide a password on the User form in BMC Remedy AR System. In this case, if the user provides a password, the user passes authentication. If the user does not provide a password, the login attempt is rejected.

- Open the AR System Administration: Server Information form, and click the EA tab.
