Guest self-reg auto_update_account broken? 6.10.1

    Hi guys

    So two customers of ours came to us almost at the same time with problems regarding Guest self-registration. Returning guests wasn't able to log in.
    This was an SMS based self-reg and the guests was sendt the updated password, Looking into it further it just seems that the guest isn't allowed to update the expired account they registered the day before. Almost like the "auto_update" field 

    I verified that the auto_update_account field is enabled and set to 1. Created a new self-reg page from defaults which use email as username - same thing there.

    Both accounts are recently upgraded to CPPM 6.10.1, and they are reaching out to TAC to find a solution.

    Anyone else had this issue and found a solution? Thanks!

    Clearpass is out and with that the issue of self-registration not auto-updating expired accounts and IOS devices not getting the portal is now fixed.
