Win2003 Dom Forced Password Change Prob

By ryakel ·
When I reset a user's password (back to password) and select 'user must change password at next logon'...the next time they logon with the reset password, they are prompted to change password like it is supposed to. However, the dc that authenticates the user doesn't like the reset password. I believe the dc that is prompting for the password change doesnt have a copy of the reset password and therefore doesn't allow the user to change it for x-amount of time. Eventually the user will be able to change the password upon next logon. Any thoughts on where the latency is?

Active directory must replicate to each server set up as a dc. I have not studied active directory in detail yet, but there is a setting on what is replicated and how often. Things that you describe should be replicated immediately. You may need to make a change to the replication schedule to have the desired effects.
