Change Password Error | passcorepro

If you are receiving the error “Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied (Exception from HRESULT; 0x80070547)” when trying to change a user’s password and you are using Windows Server 2012 with the updates 3177108 and 3167679 or using Windows Server 2016.

passcorepro will not be able to change passwords; this due to some security restrictions made by Microsoft, in order to solve this situation, the connection to Active Directory must run over SSL (using port 636)

If you do not have SSL active in your Domain Controller, please visit this blog entry
