Can "Change Password" in WordPress update AD? (2 posts)

    I'm using the latest version of the plugin 1.1.4. I would like to find out if changing the password in WordPress will also update in AD with the correct settings. I've tried but so far haven't seen it work.

    I have Auto User Creation on, Auto Update and the 3 Password Handling boxes un-checked.

    I have Enable Lost Password Recovery checked as well.

    My install is talking to AD fine and on first login, it creates the local user and logs me in.

    If I change the WordPress password for the user via the user's WordPress profile page, it says the Password Change is successful. However, that password never works, only the old password in AD works.

    I've confirmed that I don't have the "fall-back to local DB" enabled.

    Any help is appreciated, and cool plugin. Thanks!

    I also noticed that if I go through the Password Reset option, and reset the password via the WordPress link, I am unable to login with the new password. I'm assuming this is because my settings are only authenticating to AD and the WP password change isn't updating AD.
