AD policies and passwords
There are often situations where Active Directory (AD) policies require users to change passwords, for example, the first time a user logs in with a temporary password, when a user’s password expires, or when a user forgets a password. Unfortunately, because enterprises typically do not expose their Active Directory infrastructure over the internet, remote users may not have the access they need to update their AD passwords in these situations.
- GlobalProtect (GP)
Enabling password change for remote users
- GlobalProtect 3.1 and earlier versions do not natively provide support to change or update a user’s AD password.
- This document explains how you can use alternate methods and enable remote users to change their Active Directory passwords over a GlobalProtect tunnel.
