Azure AD Domain Services does not allow the user to unlock a domain account

As per title, Azure AD Domain Services does not allow Domain Administrators to unlock user accounts. The user has to wait for 30 minute timeout to occur before the account unlocks. Please can we, the Administrator, please be allowed this most basic of AD Administration powers before the users gather with fire and pitchfork demanding our blood?

Hello Brian ,

We apologize for the inconvenience. At this point there the default password policy can not be changed within the AAD Domain services environment. We would request you to upvote the feedback item related to this . The feedback site is periodically reviewed by the product engineering and the votes on a feature help them prioritize the requests better.

You can achieve smaller lockout times by using Fine grained password policy. As a workaround you can create a custom password policy and apply on the objects in AADDC users container in AAD domain Services environment. We understand this is not the solution you are looking for but at the moment this is the best workaround that can be used . We hope that this feature gets implemented in the product .

Hope this helps. In case the information provided in the post helped please do mark it as answer. In case of any further queries, please do let us know and we will be happy to help.

Thank you.

So bottom line, if you are using Azure AD Domain Service you can not unlock a user in AD?
