  • Hi

    This is by design and a windows security feature. If you want to override this use Fine Grained Password policy.

    Also can you let me know the value of pwdProperties in your domain, below is the step to find the value

    • Click Start, point to Programs, point to Adminstrative Tools,  point to Tools, and then click ADSI Edit.
    • Expand Domain NC [<var>Your_Domain_Name</var>]
    • Right-click DC=<var>Your_Domain_Name</var>,DC=<var>Your_Domain_Name</var>, and then click Properties.
    • Click the Attributes tab, and then in the Select a property to view list, click  pwdProperties.

    BTW what is the Operating System ?


    Regards ImLearning

  • Hi

    Default domain administrator account can be locked out, if the pwdproperties value is modified in ADSIEDIT.MSC

    If you are still facing issue please share the pwdproperties value.

    • Click Start, point to Programs, point to Adminstrative Tools,  point to Tools, and then click ADSI Edit.
    • Expand Domain NC [<var>Your_Domain_Name</var>]
    • Right-click DC=<var>Your_Domain_Name</var>,DC=<var>Your_Domain_Name</var>, and then click Properties.
    • Click the Attributes tab, and then in the Select a property to view list, click  pwdProperties.
