User allowed to user same PW when PW is expired and forced to change in GVC

When a user's Active Directory (LDAP/TLS) PW is expired and GVC forces them to change it, they are allowed to use the same PW as their current one. Is this expected behavior?

    Since this is not a local user on the firewall, rather an AD user account, you should review AD Password Policy.

    AD GPO does not allow password reuse. It caches the last 10 PWs. The policy works fine for native Windows clients when they are forced to change their PW.

    Hi @Dervari , make sure in the LDAP referrals settings you set as below, then it shouldn't cache the password
