Tech Tip : CA Single Sign-On : AD Old Password Still Accepted

Discussion created by Patrick-Dussault Employee on Jan 2, 2017

Issue:

 

We have recently implemented a change password mechanism using smpwservices.fcc for a new application. It is working as expected and if I logoff and logon with new credentials everything seem to work fine.

 

The problem is that (for a certain period of time) I'm able to login with old credentials too. Why is this possible? Is it a caching issue? How can I force Siteminder to accept only the new credentials?


Cause:

 

This is expected as AD will keep old password valid for some time:

Resolution:

 

Product is working as designed.

 

Delay is in 'new password' propagation in AD infrastructure
