Exchange + Active Directory + Lumia + Outlook 2013: Password change propagated to clients?!?! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    following use case. I reset the password for a user in Active Directory Administrative Center.

    My Lumia phone has NO problems to connect, without me being prompted to enter the new password? Then I play with the calendar and it works, changes get synched through the server.

    I tried several workflows, the most perplexing of which:

    1. Power the phone off

    2. Reset the password in Active Directory Administrative Center

    3. Start the phone

    4. It connects to the server!!!

    I don't really GROK this. The only clue - In the phone settings, under "sync my settings", "Passwords" is "On". I doesn't seem logical to me, because the ActiveDirectory server has no way to know how to access my personal OneDrive ...

    Does anyone have an idea? I find this really disturbing, it means that if someone steals my phone, he's got me, even if I reset the password. What am I supposed to do, delete the account? :)
