Subject RE: LDAP (Active Directory) password concerns

No I agree with you. Not being able to log into the machine with the old password and being
able to with the new one is all correct behavior.  I mentioned this to illustrate that the
password had indeed been changed.

The accounts I mentioned were to answer your question about their potentially being another
LOCAL account for that user which there is not.


So after it has "sit" for awhile, I can no longer log in with the old password. I will look
at the logs to see if there is a service or something that refreshes something in the background..
Thank you for your help.

correct behavior

If I use the new one, it logs me into the machine.
also correct behavior

There are only three accounts in the ACS instance: admin, bare-metal and testallow. Testallow
is the LDAP account.

not following where the issue might be

it in past, I'd be surprised to see this behavoiur, last i recall, we dont cache - and do
a lookup to LDAP each time user tries to authenticate.. You should see this in the logs..

great accept one thing. If I change the password on the AD user, ACS still allows the user
to log into the ACS portal with the old AND the new password...

Did I miss a setting?
