Unabling user password change for Portal connected to Active Directory

How can you enable a user to change their AD password in EP when their password expires?

We have configured EP 7.0 SP14 with a read/write connection to AD according to the following instructions. The connection works and we are able to write to AD. However, when we expire the user's password in AD, EP does not ask the user to change it. Instead, it just gives an authentication error.

Is there some additional settings that I need to do to enable this?

This is as expected. The portal's job is not to be a password manager for other UME sources. When you logon to the portal, it basically says to the UME source "is this a valid username/password?". If the answer is "yes", then the user is valid. I

When you first create the user using the UME tools, it sets a flag in the UME, not, the underlying source, that the user needs to change their password.
