AD Bridge 24.1.1 Release Notes

May 15, 2024

  • Agent:
  • Windows: N/A

This is an Agent-only release.

New Features and Enhancements

Enable the Machine Password after domainjoin

We've enhanced the ResetMachinePassword configuration option to support a reversion of the PwdLastSet after a domainjoin option we introduced in AD Bridge 24.1.0.


In AD Bridge 24.1.0, we added the following update:

  • Reset machine password on join
    • PwdLastSet was only updating after half the MachinePasswordLifespan(Defaulted to 30days) was reached. Now after a domainjoin is successful it will initiate a machine password reset.

With the 24.1.1 release, we are reverting this change to make it an elective feature, instead of an always-on feature, via the ResetMachinePasswordOnJoin configuration options.


With the ResetMachinePasswordOnJoin configuration option, you can opt to send an automatic password reset request to a machine once the machine joins a domain.

Acceptable values include:

  • true sends a request to reset the machine password

  • false does not send a request to reset a machine password

  • Default valuefalse


You can also set the wait (in minutes) before the password reset request is sent after joining a domain.

The ResetMachinePasswordOnJoin option must be set to true.

Acceptable values include:

  • digits 2 - 60, inclusive

  • Default value: 5

Force a Machine Password Reset

Use the new pbis ad-reset-machine-password command to force a machine password reset request at any time.

Support for pam_aucore on domainjoins

As pam_aucore is seen as a known module, is placed above
