A user has started to use the Lotus Notes Web Version and I have set him a default  password of 123456789 and ticked the  box of " Force the user to change the Internet Password ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,," to make the user able to change his password but what happened was

1- After the user put the Default  Internet Password he wasnt forced to change it with a new one and he access his emails successfully.

2- when the user attempts to change the password from the " Preferences"  he gets a massage of " Password was changed successfully" but it never changes .

3- The password only gets chagned when I change it on the user document on the Domino Directory .

Does any one know how to solve this problem

1) check that proper permissions are used on the address book ( Domino directory )

2) Test with a user that has admin or editor in the ACL

3) Double check the help in the Admin client on how to allow users to chnage passwords for iNotes - web version


I hope this helps !

Also check adminP for any password change errors.

1) the user has got the proper permission similar to all the other users but his is the only one having this problem .

2) I have tested it with my user ID since I am the Admin.

3) That one was checked too and the instructions in the help were applied but still  he has a problem

Moreover, on the adminP there is not problem for any user changing the Http Password.

What errors show up in the log.nsf or adminp DB ?

Were there any name changes done for this person ?

What is different ?

If all else fails, delete and recreate the user completely.


I hope this helps !

There are no errors at all on the Log.nsf or the adminp DB...
There were no names chagned at all
But I think deleting and recreating the user will solve this problem .
