This behavior occurs when password synchronization is enabled for the IIS 4.0 application. For IIS 5.0, password synchronization is called "Allow IIS to control password."

That particular problem has been fixed in MDAC version 2.0 and later.
Disable password synchronization for the Internet Information Server 4.0 application. For IIS 5.0, do not allow IIS to control the password. To do this, perform the following steps:
