Refreshing prevalidated credentials

To ensure their validity, the credentials for prevalidated users and groups are periodically retrieved from Active Directory. For example, the credentials are refreshed whenever you do the following:

  • Reboot the local computer.
  • Start or restart the adclient process.
  • Run the adflush command to clear the cache.
  • Changes a password from the local system.

The credentials are also periodically refreshed at the interval defined by the adclient.prevalidate.interval parameter to ensure that prevalidation will continue working after password changes.
