Windows 2008 AD - Multiple password; same account VERY STRANGE!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    I have come across a strange behavior with one of the user accounts in our AD which runs on 2K8 Server OS, the user has multiple password for the same account.

    I tested it my self, i tired the user with old password in Internet explorer and then in Mozilla with the new password; this was done via webmail!!!

    This is very-very strange; am i missing something please help me guys...

    One thing to add, the user changes his password through webmail then this scenario occurs, however when i change it through AD MMC, the situation of multiple password dose not arises; so it means something needs to be done from Exchnage 2007 MMC/Power Shell???

    Cheers!

    It's not Exchange that's doing that, it's IIS:
