Include fhcloud\ before user name for Cloud-hosted FHFriday, October 7, 2016
Category: News

In the past couple of weeks, an error message has appeared for FH Cloud-hosted customers logging into FH after a password reset was performed for their account. The message states that the operating system failed to change the password because it detected a possible attempt to compromise security. This message is appearing because of a new issue in the login process. The FH Cloud team is working to resolve this issue. 

Workaround: The first time you log into FH after a password reset, include fhcloud\ before the username to avoid this message.

Example: fhcloud\JoeFireman  

Important:  Please ensure that this message reaches all FH Cloud users in your department.                                              

Note: We strongly recommend that all FH Cloud users enroll in the self-management of password (SMOP) portal, so that they can reset or change their own password, unlock their FH Cloud accounts, and manage their user ID questions. Information on SMOP is available at Self-management of password (SMOP).
