Consider the following scenario.
This problem occurs because the computer cannot retrieve the password requirements in an anonymous session.
After a user's password expires, the computer can use computer information to create sessions only with the domain controller that hosts the user. In this case, Kerberos authentication fails if the target domain is not in the list of Domain Name System (DNS) suffixes to search. Therefore, the computer uses an anonymous session. In an anonymous session, the computer cannot retrieve the password requirements when the password change fails.
