No.  I mean the software actually changes the password.  As mentioned by another poster before, the user will most likely write down the password when he uses it.  Knowing human nature, he will probably try to use it again later without following the proper check out procedure.  To protect against the bypassing of the procedure, the password is automatically changed when it's checked back in.

Maybe I was too detailed in my question.  What I'm looking for mainly is anybody in this group that is using an electronic password vault to report on its stability and whether or not it has ever caused a problem in your systems if the solution failed.  How well has your backup solution worked?  I'm looking for real world experience with this kind of solution that might help us determine if it's trustworthy or not.
