Exchange 2010 SP1 Password Reset Problem RRS feed

Answers

  • Hi Dest,

    In this case, you may notice a 15-minute period during which the user can log on to their mailbox by using either the old password or the new password. However, if the user uses a MAPI client (such as Microsoft Outlook) to access the mailbox or if the user tries to access other files and resources, the user is authenticated only if they use the new password.

    This latency exists by design for Internet Information Services (IIS) performance reasons and is controlled by the following registry setting.

    Thanks.

  • Sounds like poor replication.

    The old password shouldn't work after it has been changed, but if there are replication delays, then the old password may well still be valid on another domain controller.

  • I don't believe it to be poor replication, especially with how small our domain is. Thank you for the links and explanations.
