  • Windows Server Standard 2003 32-bit restarting after changing a password of an Active

    Hello Friends

    This is one of the weirdest problem I have faced till now. I have active directory installed in Windows 2003 32-bit system. We have our company password filter which receives password change when a user tries to change any of the AD user password. The problem is that the password filter is installed correctly and the service is also started. But when I try to change the password of an Active Directory User, the system crashes and it restarts itself automotically. It first given an alert window saying that the windows cannot perform password change on the specified user and then restarts itself after 1 minute.

    When I tried to look at the Event Viewer of the Windows, I got the following error message in the Application or System log -

    ****************************************



    Note the windows is in VM and is updated till date. One of the important point I have to tell u guys is that I cannot activate the Windows on online. Whenever I try to activate it online it gives an error code of 0x8007232B.



    Can some one help me in this issue. I cannot provide you much details about the password filter, i am sorry for this.



    After some research what I came to know is that 'lsass.exe' might be getting corrupted which is causing the Windows to restart. But I am not understanding what to do?.



    Can someone please help me in this matter?.



    Thank you very much in advance

    that activation code usually means the licence key is not correct
    try re-entering it with slmgr /ipk

    it may also be looking for a KMS host, which you my not have

    could this be related to your LSASS/NTDLL Prob ?

      Who wrote this 3rd party password filter? How do you know it is ok?
      You can run sfc to check for corrupted files but I would be tempted to test this filter in a dev environment first though?
      cheers
