64 Character maximum password size RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using the UserPrinciple object from the DirectoryService Library, eg: UserPrincipal ADuser = getUserInfo(username, false); ADuser.ChangePassword(oldPassword, newPassword);

    However if we set the newPassword as longer than 63 characters it errors saying that it does not match the complexity requirements. If we make the change manually i.e CTRL-ALT-DEL - Change Password we are able to set a password longer than 64 characters.

    Anyone have any idea why this is occuring?
