Updating from RC4-HMAC-M5 to AES-128 & AES256 - why do they change the password twice? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I have been reading up on this topic, and I have come across of number of articles recommending that after you update your service accounts to AES encryption, you should reset the password twice.  I can see why our computer objects should do that, but I am not clear on why the user objects require that. Do they also store a previous password? 

    Thanks in advance for any insight!
