    Default bypass the password history setting

    Dear all,

    "Minimum number of unique passwords history" is set to 5 so that user can not set same passwd in the short peiord of time.

    however, i wonder as the system admin, is it possible to set user's password without the "passwords history" limit?

    for instance, is it possible to run :
    zmprov sp user@domain new_passwd

    (no matter new_passwd is in one of the password history list??)

    currently, it just returned :
    ERROR: account.PASSWORD_RECENTLY_USED (password was recently used)

    is there any way to achieve this?

    what if you remove that option for that particular user, change the pass, then set it back?
