Active Directory Password Changed but Active sync still works

Hi all,

I've recently noticed that if we change a password on a user account through Active Directory, their Active Sync still works on their devices, specifically on iPhones and iPads.

I don't remember this being the case. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply!

I followed the KB article in the link you provided. I don't have that key in the registry but just added it.

I should have also noted, that the test user accounting used had the password changed over two days ago and Active Sync is still working. I don't remember that being normal, I remember having to get users to update there password on their devices after they updated it on windows. That article says the default value is 15 minutes.


Thanks!

I found the solution, someone recently changed the authentication method from windows integrated to basic in IIS.

Thanks for your help! Points are yours since the KB led me to it.
