Password Email not Recognised


I set up a policy to email admins (me at this stage) on password
failure, a copy of NOVLPWDSYNC-itp-EmailOnFailedPwdSub

Then as an admin, I set a password on the user that would fail on the
remote AD system (2012)

Below is the relevant Status message at the policy
Should this not have triggered ?
Do I have to alter it for 2012, or is there something else wrong.

(If I set a valid password, it sync's correctly)

Thanks in advance

I believe the above is why it failed. There is no text in the status element.
If you just want all errors and not just password errors you could trim it down to:
self::status[@level != 'success']
or removing the offending predicate should also correct the issue.
