User of a Disabled Account Is Prompted to Change the Password Before the "Account Has Been Disabled" Message Appears

Support for Windows Server 2003 ended on July 14, 2015

Microsoft ended support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. This change has affected your software updates and security options. Learn what this means for you and how to stay protected.

SYMPTOMS
When a user of a disabled user account that is set to require a password change on the next logon tries to log on to the account, the user receives the following message, regardless of whether the password that is provided is correct:
You are required to change your password at first logon.
If the password that is provided is correct and the user changes the password, the user receives the following message:
Your account has been disabled. Please see your system administrator.
Note When a user tries to log on to a disabled account, the expected behavior is that the "account has been disabled" message is displayed immediately.
CAUSE
This problem occurs because Windows uses incorrect priorities when it processes the logon of a disabled account.
RESOLUTION

Windows 2003
