User Must Change Password at Next Logon (LDAP Provider)

User Must Change Password at Next Logon (LDAP Provider)

To force a user to change their password at next logon, set the pwdLastSet attribute to zero (0). To remove this requirement, set the pwdLastSet attribute to -1. The pwdLastSet attribute cannot be set to any other value except by the system.

The following code example shows how to set the "User must change password at next logon" option.


Dim usr as IADs

Set usr = GetObject("LDAP://CN=Jeff Smith,OU=Sales,DC=Fabrikam,DC=Com")
usr.Put "pwdLastSet", CLng(0)
usr.SetInfo

The following code example shows how to set the "User must change password at next logon" option.


/***************************************************************************

HRESULT SetUserMustChangePassword(LPCWSTR pwszUserADsPath, 
                                  LPCWSTR pwszUsername, 
                                  LPCWSTR pwszPassword)

    IADs *pUser;
    HRESULT hr;

    hr = ADsOpenObject(pwszUserADsPath,

                        IID_IADs,
                        (void**)&pUser);

    if(SUCCEEDED(hr))
    {
        VARIANT var;
        VariantInit(&var);
        V_I4(&var) = 0;
        V_VT(&var) = VT_I4;
        hr = pUser->Put(CComBSTR("pwdLastSet"), var);
        hr = pUser->SetInfo();

        VariantClear(&var);
        pUser->Release();
    }

    return hr;
}
