AD Reset Password related RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a requirement where our application needs to allow users to authenticate to AD and Change their own Passwords. We have used the unicodePwd attribute and taken care of UTF-16LE  quoted string while performing the operation. The operation throws INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS exception when attempted.

    On modifying the user and giving Reset Password permission to SELF we are able to perform the Change Password operation.

    In this case, the operation doesnt seem to comply with Password Policies set. Like for example, the user can reuse his existing password even though the policy mandates that the last 24 passwords cannot be reused.

    Is there a way to get over this, am I missing something?

    Thanks,

    Saiesh
