Issue/Introduction

If the Administrator changes\resets the Users password in Active Directory , It is noticed that it does not sync with the Pre Boot Authentication Screen. For this to work the user has to unregister and re-register the user

If we change the user’s windows password through AD then on clients it will not sync with the Pre Boot Authentication Screen. User is looking for a way to sync the new password with the Pre Boot Authentication Screen (without unregistering and re registering the user)
