At the moment we will have no choice but reset the credentials.

I was meaning to ask you if we have any other way around. Is it
possible to use a random salt instead of the principal name ?

We do enforce pre-authentication by default, so IIRC it should be
possible, but it doesn't seem to make any difference atm, I guess we
need to change something in the password plugin ?

Simo.
