I observed a strange thing. Why password not required field is enabled, even though we are providing passwords while creating a new user in active directory.

" User Account Control:

    Account Disabled

    'Password Not Required' - Enabled

    'Normal Account' - Enabled

User Parameters:    -

SID History:        -

Logon Hours:        <value not set>



I've seen account provisioning processes that do this to prevent the account creation from failing due to some password issue. But it should undo that after the account has been created.

  • I second that, you should see another event logged shortly thereafter setting some of the properties correctly. – Lucky Luke Aug 17 '20 at 15:47
