Saving previous password with reversible encryption

Saving previous password with reversible encryption allows you to save the user’s previous password with reversible encryption in Active Directory. This can be enabled domain wide although additional policies will not have to utilize previous passwords.

Reversible encryption is needed for the following settings:

  • Minimum number of changed characters
  • Disallow reusing part of the current password

If one of these two options above is selected without the “Save previous password with reversible encryption” option in the domain settings enabled, this error message will trigger and you will need to go enable the option before proceeding.
