Description Atul Dashpute 2015-03-04 12:51:53 UTC
Hello Support Team,

Thanks For developing awesome software package i.e. SAMBA 4.

I have implemented it however we are having following issue.

When Password Expired user can't changed the password from his side and getting following error message :

'unable to update the password, the value porvided for the new password does not meet the login complexity or history requirement of the domain'

However when On server when We changed it then he is able to login with new password . 

Is any solution for this ? Kindly advice

Hello Atul.
Can you try to repro the issue on latest samba release. If issue still persists.
a. Provide us smb.conf
b. Exact steps you carried to change password
c. Exact error message when you try changing password.

Most likely not a problem in current releases.
