This user is getting this error :: " password was refused by the ldap directory"

he was trying to reset his password.


Oddly, I manually reset his password and he is able to ssh into an atlassian server just find, but not able to reset his pwd to be able to reach all atlassian tools.


I've encountered this 3 times before in last 2 months.

Ive tried restarting crowd. I haven't restarted our Active Directory servers yet.


I thought that the 3 times before sorta 'healed' itself and users were back in action just fine.
