Active Directory Account password sync over VPN possible

What worked for me:

  • Login to laptop using cached, old password.
  • Connect via VPN.
  • Open Command Prompt
  • Type ‘runas /user:<DOMAIN>\<USERNAME> cmd’
  • Enter new password.
  • Close both Command Prompts.
  • Wait a few minutes. Shortly after, you should get the notification area pop-up with the set of keys icon with notice “Windows Needs Your Current Credentials
    Please lock this computer, then unlock it using your most recent password or smart card”.
  • Locked the computer.
  • Unlock with new password.
  • Done.
