Pressing CTRL+C in PORTUAS Causes Password Problems
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
- Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
- Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1
If you press CTRL+C during the operation of the PORTUAS program, user modals, such as the minimum password length and the password history, are not changed to their final values.
PORTUAS sets all user modals to temporary values initially. When it finishes, it assigns them final values. If you press CTRL+C, it keeps the temporary values.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT and Windows NT Advanced Server version 3.1. This problem was corrected in the latest U.S. Service Pack for Windows NT and Windows NT Advanced Server version 3.1.
