We have HMC 3.5 FP1 on Exchange 2003 and it works fine since one year.
Since about 2 days when I create a new customer/Company and then a new user using webconsole I get the following error message.

I am getting the same error using CreateUser against an HMC 4.5 box. If I set the newPassword value I get the error, otherwise success. The password is suffciciently strong, My full error message:
System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException was unhandled
Message="Server was unable to process request. ---> An error encountered while processing object 'LDAP...com'./The server is unwilling to process the request. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80072035)/User Set Password ---> <response><errorContext description=\"An

I have been experiencing the error, too, using the
CreateUserRequestData object and
CreateUser method from the MPS
Web Service from an HMC 4.5 server. I found I could get around the error using Base 64 encoding on the password string. I created this function to do it conveniently:
public static string Encode(string text)
byte textByte = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(text);
SoapException hmc mps CreateUser password

I found now my encoding trick isn't really helping, since the encoded string becomes the password, not the original password.

Anyone else experience this or find a way around it?

Now I discovered my real issue. The domain password policy was stricter than I thought. Changing that worked out for me.
