We are running fully patched OES2015SP1 servers.
We are busy on changing our users to stronger passwords: We created universal password policy with minimum numbers , numbers, alpha, etc ... The universal password policy is set to not verify passwords on logon.
This works fine.
Then we changed the minimum characters of a password from 5 to 11 in the policy. Since we changed the minimum characters we got the issue that some accounts got expired, expiry date is 1970, and out of graces.
As I did some investigation the users which have the issue had a password shorter then 11 characters.
The users with a microfocus client and do not use ldap applications have no issues.
The users with a microfocus client and use ldap applications have expiry problems.
-change the password to a password with higher then 11 characters
-set an universal policy with minimum 5 chars.

Is this normal behaviour and what can we do about it?
