Hi there,

If I reset a users AD password (directory server is 2008 - workstation is XP)  the users access to the workstation is not immediately affected.  They continue to have access to documents and Exchange emails for some time.  Even if they lock their computer they can unlock it with the old password.

If I reset someones password, what needs to happen beofre the are locked out of the system and how long will that take?
