In Windows Vista and Windows 7, if a user's password is changed in Active Directory while the user is logged on, this change does not take effect immediately.
This is due to differences between Microsoft's security model for previous Windows operating systems and that of Windows Vista/Windows 7. Microsoft has removed the "NPPasswordChangeNotify" function that previously informed ESSO-LM of the need to refresh cached credentials, and therefore the local cached credentials are not updated.
This Microsoft change only affects users who are logged in when the administrator changes the password remotely. Administrators should always ensure that a user has logged off all client workstations before assigning a new password.
