After deploying the AD User Management Connector and AD Password Synchronization Connector, a password change loop is observed in the following scenarios:

1. OIM User is changing his password trough self service interface
2. OIM User password is reset by the administrator
3. End user is changing his password in AD system directly
4. End user password is reset by the administrator in AD directly

The password loop consists in the following operations:

- password is changed in the OIM User object
- password is propagated to AD system
- the password synchronization connector send the password back to the OIM
- the loop continues from first step
