Password change functionnality for EP users in UME DB and LDAPreadonly

We have two kind of UME datasources in a Netweaver Portal 2004 : DB users and LDAP users.

LDAP is read only and has a policy for password expiration. Password change can only happen in a dedicated external application.

We need to implement a password retention control in the portal, link LDAP users to the external application and use standard portal mechanism for policies of DB users.

As far as I know, in the standard portal mechanism for policies and logon, we are not able to map the date of last password change in LDAP with the one in the portal, and depending of which datasource user, to propose a different behaviour for a password change.

Is there a simple way to do it or do we need to develop a new login archive ?

Thank you for any good idea on this subject.
