ADSync -- MSOL_xxxxxx | Change password and apply AD Password Policy

SenhorDolas 1,271 Reputation points


We have a new security policy for all accounts with "Password not set to expiry" to be reviewed and setting removed.

I came across the MSOL_xxxx account.

Can I reset the password as per our security policy recommendation (30 x char) and can I apply an AD Password Policy to expire the password in 365 days?

Wonder if this will cause any issues on ADSync...

    Hi @SenhorDolas

    Thank you for reaching us!

    The MSOL account is created with a long, complex password that doesn't expire. If you have a password policy in your domain, make sure that long and complex passwords are allowed for this account.
