Weak password was specified for Active Directory user. POA due to built-in regulations does not allow to do this. Provider used it's own specific way to create user (API, SQL-queries, etc.).


To change user's password, go to CCP > Users tab > <affected user>, change password using "Change password" button. Then resubmit failed task.
