Hi all,

I've got OWA running on a Front-End server and have configured it to show the change password function in the options section.

The pop up password asp page displays but when I put the details in I'm getting the following error

Either your password is too short or password uniqueness restrictions have not been met.

I've confirmed that the settings in KB827614 are applied.

Anyone know why it's not working?

Yeah, I did.

It was due to us testing the OWA reset function with a OU policy that was not set at the domain level.

The Min password age needs to be set to 0 days, if the Domain level Policy does not have this and you are testing with a lower level OU policy for the Min password age, then it won't allow the password to be changed.

I set the default domain policy to have 0 days for Min pwd age and it worked fine.

Make sure you have 'Enable Change Password' on your backend server(s) as well. I had a similar problem until I discovered this requirement,

Easiest way to set it is by using the OWAAdmin tool:
