perhaps the most important point - the password *IS* changed successfully!

Changing password for user expired-user.
Current Password:
New password:
Retype new password:
Password change failed. Server message: Current password's minimum life

Password not changed.
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error

Thoughts? Anything?


What tool is changing the expired password?

I'd be curious to see the password policy for the user, ipa
pwpolicy-show --user=<user>

Seeing the krbLastPwdChange
  and krbPasswordExpiration might be handy too.


I was hoping it would not go off on this tangent. All users have the default PW policy -- there are no differences and every single user has the same problem.

The tool is simple "passwd" or, in the case of some users who have actually hit the 90 expiry, nothing more than a simple login followed by the system saying your password has expired, please change it.

The krbLastPwdChange shows the exact day/time of the user changing their PW, in this case, when this error occurs. The expiration shows 90 days from that time. If you see the specifics I mentioned, even though the error is presented, the password is actually changed. Really confused with this one.
