Novell Virtual Office


After the user first logs in (or after admin resets the password) and is prompted to change their password. After the password is changed succesfully a further popup box appears "Your Password is expired". The user can cancel this box and continue. This behavior does not occur outside of Virtual Office.

To Reproduce:

NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 5

Add a UP policy to a container, set policy to expire password after 30 days and give 6 grace logins.

Add forgotten password option and use the sample challenge set.

Create a new user in this container. No Other container or user password restrictions other than the defaults should be set. Login to VO as the user - get prompted to change the password.

After Changing Password, the POP UP will appear saying password has expired.

If you disable the grace logins from the UP Policy this works fine.
