ISA server in a workgroup configuration (using LDAPS authentication), providing access to web sites that reside in a Windows 2003 AD domain, using forms based authentication. ISA version is RTM running on Windows 2003 SP2.
User is prompted to reset password due to upcoming expiry (15 day notification), or is forced change based on expired password. After typing password into password change form and clicking Change Password user receives the following error message no matter what password is used:
"The supplied password does not meet the minimum complexity requirements. Please try again".
User enters credentials again, then same error message, and then back to the password reset form. Passwords used do meet complexity requirements of domain. Checked logs, and when in this happens ISA does not access domain controllers (or the destination web site) when the user is caught in this form loop.
This problem is also intermittent. Did it to me, and then after resetting the password using Active Directory Users and Computers, tried again and then worked fine. Tried a few times and was not able to make it fail again. Difference was that ISA in this instance did attempt to hit the DCs for authentication.
Anyone seen this before? Updated to Windows SP2 on ISA a few months back, not sure is this is related or not.
