“Cannot modify password” error while performing change password

I have configured the Password policies in OAM. While performing a change password function, I got the message “Cannot modify password” in the change password screen. Nothing suspicious in OID (OAM User store) for password related attributes.

I have the seen the below error in the Identity Server logs:

2011/02/16@10:33:09.759368      317     317     LPM     ERROR   0x00000901      lost_pwd_mgmt.cpp:263   “Cannot modify password”        LoginName^oamtestuser63

The user oamtestuser63 is performing the change password.

Cause:

Password minimum age is configured for certain no. of days.

Solution:

password minimum age was configured as 4 days in the Password policy. This means that the user will not be able to change the password for 4 days after the password is created in LDAP.

So changing it to 0 or leaving it blank worked!!

Thought worth sharing this!!
