IT29523: ERROR MESSAGE IS INCORRECT WHEN SETTING NEW PASSWORD TO CURRENT PASSWORD WITH PASSWORD "CONTROL-REUSE" SETTTING
Closed as program error.
The password setting "control reuse" = off to allow recent passwords to be reused. However, when trying to set the new password (test1) to the current password (test1), the following error message is displayed: % User name password change failed: password matched a previously used password It should state that password cannot match current password.
Changing the password incorrectly might produce errors indicating password reuse rules are being invoked even when the settings are disabled.
Create new log message specifically for invalid passwords matching currently used password. Prevent multiple attempts at password checking to disallow password guessing.
