Active Directory (AD) Password Change Web Part allows users to change their own passwords in a SharePoint portal site without site administrator intervention.
When a user accesses a page where the AD Password Change Web Part is configured, the web part automatically detects user's user name and domain and displays it in the Username field. The user then enters their old password, the new password and a confirmation of the new password and then clicks Submit. If the current password is incorrect or the new password does not meet the password policy criteria in place at your site, the user receives an error message. The web part verifies the new password and then submits the change and displays the message.
- Allows AD users to change their password, using a standard text box interface (i.e., old password, new password, and confirm new password).
- Warns the user if the password change failed and/or does not meet company security policy for AD.
