    Is it necessary to duplicate AD details in the WP database?

    We would like to use AD as our user directory but are concerned about duplicating account data (passwords!) in a SQL database.

    Is it not possible to just authenticate users against AD and leave the user data where it is?

    The AD password is not updated in WordPress. The user account is created with a random password and all authentications happen against the AD credentials. The configured attributes are pulled up so as to create a basic local user profile, but nothing happens for the passwords.

    Marking it as resolved.
