Description (partial)

When using LDAP with password management, ASA queries for password settings during the domain level attribute search.  So for every user the password reset message is populated by a notice that requests that the user adhere to the domain default password length requirements.  However when the user has been placed in a group that is forced to adhere to FGPP/PSO with different length/complexity requirements than the default, Anyconnect still prompts them for the domain default value instead of the FGPP define length.

As an example:

FGPP defined on DC requires a 20 character minimum and user is in fact required to adhere to this when setting the password, so the message displayed by Anyconnect is misleading.

Active Directory groups with Fine Grained Password Policies that have different minimum length requirements than the default policy.
