Getting error "The handle is invalid" when trying to change initial windows passwrod.



I just signed up for oracle cloud trial and create a windows virtual machine instance. I got the initial password from VM details screens and I am able to RDP into the VM. However, as soon as I login, the VM is asking me to change the password. When I put new password and hit enter key, I get following error.

I have tried multiple different passwords and I know password meets all of the requirements.

ERROR: The handle is invalid.





Howdy, Stranger!
