Hi there,

Two of the users so far in our domain who are trying to update their password on their windows 8 domained laptop are getting this error. They are trying to change the password by pressing alt+ctrl+del on their keyboard and then selecting change password. They have no issues logging into the computer but just when they try to change their passwords.

I already checked their principal name and dns name is correct through ADSI edit on the DC. I also disjoined the computer from domain. Renamed the computer to a much shorter name and then added to domain again. Waited for a while and have the user tried again and same error.

Running exchange 2010 on windows server 2008 R2

Any hints would be appreciated.

THanks,

Puneet

Were these two PCs built from a clone/image?  If so, were the SIDs on these PCs changed?

No  they were not cloned or imaged.
They are fairly new Win8.1s on domained machines.

This is a known issue with Windows 8.1. Microsoft released this hotfix to address the issue which needs to be installed on your Domain Controllers (note: a reboot is required).

If your Domain Controllers are not on Windows 2008 R2/2012/2012 R2 then you have a problem as Microsoft haven't released a hotfix for older Server OS's yet. Your only other option for users to change their own password is to do it through OWA (if you have an on-premise Exchange server in your environment) or get an admin to do it for them through the Active Directory Users and Computers console.

If the PCs were just running Windows 8 and not 8.1 you could simply uninstall the KB2845626 update to fix the issue.
