Hi.

I am developing a library for active directory operations like authentication, create user, delete user, enable/disable user and change password.

My library works fair except a few bugs.

Issue #1. When I call...
C#
UserPrincipal.SetPassword(somePassword);
...the password is simply set even if I try with the previous password when the Enfore Password History policy is set with a value 9 passwords remembered. When this policy is active, my password change code is expected to fail because it is a recently used one. But my code simply sets the new password. Any idea about how to fix this?

Issue #2. When I set a password, the password is rejected if the complexity requirement is not met. Is there any idea to retrieve the active password policy settings so that I can display a friendly message to the end user?

Thanks for your time. But this is not exactly what I want. I am not doing anything about asp.net validation controls. I am trying to work with Active Directory and get policy from there.
