Lotus Connections 2.5 issue

Shortly after setting up Lotus Connections 2.5 I needed to change session time out different from the default 30 minutes. As I started changing the timeouts on each enterprise application I noticed that the news application stopped working. I restarted the server and I then started getting the following errors while trying to access the home page:


Oops, that didn't work

Something went wrong - click the back button and try again. If this doesn't work report the problem to the support forum. CLFRQ0355E: It is not possible to retrieve the tab instance ID. An error occurred while getting the internal ID of the authenticated user from the session.$$

Then I would receive the following error when access the wikis:

EJPVJ9104E: Unable to initialize application platform.

Which google returned only 2 websites with this error. The first one states:
EJPVJ9104E: Unable to initialize application platform.
Explanation: An error occurred while initializing the platform that this application was built on. No services will be available.
User Response: Examine the nested exception and determine the appropriate action. Often configuration is missing or incorrect, or the install was not properly completed.

and the second one relating to a pilot install. After looking at the systemout.log I found:

I've truncated this error for display purposes. After Google searching for

Connection authorization failure occurred. Reason: Password expired. ERRORCODE=-4214

I found this website that explained the issue was the lcuser account. Sure enough the account was set to change password at next logon. I reset the password to the original password, cleared that check mark and marked "user cannot change password" and "Password never expires".

I then restated the server and the news enterprise application started and the everything worked.
