Password change takes a long time to take effect!
Posted on 2011-10-25
Windows Server 2008 DC
Policy requires that when new account user logs on for the first time , the user must change password. However, after entering the new password information, and pressing OK, nothing seems to happen for about five minutes. I thought the clients were hanging at first, but then after 5 mins, the next screen "customizing settings" appeared, and all was well.
What could be the cause?
These were XP clients and we have a second server replicating accounts on the first. This has never been a problem before today.
