How come some users can't log in?

If you have a current student, staff, or faculty member who cannot log into the Active Directory, it is almost always because they have not changed their password since September 1999. This coincides with Case's Kerberos KDC being upgraded from v4 to v5. Active Directory does not support v4 salt keys, and the only way to pick new v5 salt keys is by changing your password.

The ADS Administrator says there are more than 22,000 users who have not changed their password since 9/1999.
