Changing Domain User password on demand not working

Last Modified: 2020-02-07
I helped an IT Admin change his password.
I went to the User in ADUC or AD Users and Computers tool on the DC and did this:

I reset the password with a random password and checked the box: The User must change the password at the next logon.
This did not change the password and the User wasn't prompted to change the password!

Next:
I reset the password with a known password and UNchecked the box: The User must change the password at the next logon.
This did change the password and the User wasn't prompted to change the password - just as expected.

Next:
The user tried to change his own password using ADUC and Access was Denied.

Does any of this ring a bell?
I did find this:

but it seems a somewhat different case.
