Password self-service errors - Password can be changed only once in a day


Hi experts,

We've been using password resets without issues for several months. Recently we upgraded from version 5.3 SP12 to SP14.

I've read the CUP release note that explains that how password resets now validates against the ABAP system parameter for login/password_change_waittime.

The errors we are experiencing happen even when the users' password is reset for the first time in a day.

Error message:

X Unable to reset password in the following system(s): ECDCLNT100. Password can be changed only once in a day

Please advise if you have experienced this error, if there is a resolution, and/or if there is a way to disable the parameter check.

FYI - We are only using password resets in our non-production systems and are not concerned with multiple daily password resets.
