Have you figured out how to do this yet? I am trying to figure this out as well. I do LDAP querys/updates all of the time, but replacing a user's password has me stumped. I get the exact same error (WILL_NOT_PERFORM). I have been trying to decipher Microsoft's KB article:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=269190 and am trying to figure out how to covert the password to:
"the directory service expects that the octet-string will contain a UNICODE string (as the name of the attribute indicates). This means that any values for this attribute passed in LDAP must be UNICODE strings that are BER-encoded (Basic Encoding Rules) as an octet-string. In addition, the UNICODE string must begin and end in quotes that are not part of the desired password."
Also LDAP must be using SSL (which I am using).
There has got to be a way!?!
P.S. I found an workaround from this forum which I haven't tried yet (and really don't want to use, as you should be able to do this through LDAP.) It is to to a <cfexecute> net user <username> <password> /domain
Well, since no one reads or answers these forums (especially Adobe), does anyone know a better CF forum I can ask this question?
Hello all. I change/re-set a user's password by calling, via cfexecute, a batch file which uses dsmod.exe. I hope that this helps. Thanks.
