  1. Hello,

    we have some users in an externat company, that do not really log into our
    domain. They have only a limited access to our network, and so they can only
    map networkdrives to special Fileservers with useraccounts in our domain.

    Now we want them to change their passwords after they get them. how can we
    do this?

    net user

    does only work for Admins, so it doesen't help us.

  2. The command

    net user stefan MyPassword
    net user stefan MyPassword /domain

    works as long as the user tries to change his own password.

  3. Hmm,

    when trying it, I get an error "access denied".
    and where does the comman know the domain name from? the External Users I
    have, are not loged in to our domain.
