Re: [389-users] Resetting user passwords

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



Just did that, got the same error.  What do I set passwordallowchange time to?  I set it to a time value that would've been an hour ago since I got an error setting it to 0.

Thanks,
Harry

I had it set to 2 days (the "allow changes in X days" setting).  I set it to 0, logged in as that user, and got the exact same error.

Did you set the global password policy setting or the per-subtree password policy setting?
You may have to also reset the passwordallowchangetime attribute in the user's entry - if you change the minage password policy setting, it doesn't change the passwordallowchangetime in each user's entry since has already been calculated previously.


Thanks,

Harry

See if you have passwordMinAge set. This defines the minimum amount of
time that must pass before a password can be changed. This is generally
used in conjunction with password history (so a user doesn't repeatedly
change their password so they can re-use one once it gets pushed out of
history).
