Config snippets : ADLDS : Reset password without SSL
By default ADLDS does not allow to reset password on users created in ADLDS repository over connection without SSL. As sometimes there is a need to build test environment with ADLDS quick, SSL is the last thing which anyone would care about, especially if main thing to test is script automating password resets.
So, for convenience of the developers ADLDS allows to disable requirements for SSL connection to reset passwords. How to disable that reuqirement? See below how it was done on server where ADLDS was installed on port 50389:
C:\Windows\ADAM>dsmgmt dsmgmt: DS Behavior AD DS/LDS behavior: Connections server connections: Connect to server localhost:50389 Binding to localhost:50389 ... Connected to localhost:50389 using credentials of locally logged on user. server connections: q AD DS/LDS behavior: Allow Passwd op on unsecured connection Successfully modified AD DS/LDS Behavior to reset password over unsecured network. AD DS/LDS behavior: q dsmgmt: q C:\Windows\ADAM>
