ADLDS accounts disabled automatically

    Question

  • I've red about the scenario when you have an ADLDS instance inside another domain, that if you don't set the password when creating an account, the account will automatically be disabled.

    That's not the case here though.  We're setting the password either programatically, or even when manually creating with ADSI edit, but when we create accounts that start off disabled.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

    Please check the password policy in your environment.

    Minimum age

    Maximum age

    Complexity

    History

    Too many failed logon attempts

    Disabling and enabling of accounts

    If you set a password for an AD LDS user that does not meet the requirements of the password policy in effect, the user account will be disabled.

  • Yes thanks.  We had to remove the server we were developing to free up the resources for another project so I can't test, but we will be engaging it again so thanks for the info.
