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?

What you're seeing is normal, however the timeout can be changed, see the following link for an immediate cut off solution and long term solution:

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.

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.
Most welcome.
