LoginExpirationTime has a value of 21060207062814Z

Resolution

Either the LoginExpirationTime attribute has a time in the past (login time is expired) and their for valid or the value is set to 21060207062814Z.  

If the time is set to 21060207062814Z the account will be treated as if the password is expired.  Resetting the password will not remove this value.  The value must be deleted.
