Password Expired / Cannot Change Password

Discussion in 'Server Security' started by Evan Camilleri, May 9, 2006.

  1. I have a Group Policy so that password has to be changed every 70 days.
    One two machines when time is up it tells me and when i try to change
    password it does not allow me saying I have no rights.
    If I change it from server, then I cannot login on machine with new
    password, have to change it back to the old.
    I disabled group policy but still have this problem!
    If I set password never expires from users, still no success! :(

    Can I tell windows server to completly ignore change password?

    Server = Windows 2000
    Client = Windows 2000

  2. Look in the logs via Event Viewer on those computers to see if any
    errors/warnings showing problems with domain access and run the support tool
    netdiag on them looking for any problems with DNS, dc discovery, domain
    account, or trust/secure channel. Support tools are on the install disk of
    the operating system in the support/tools folder. You should be able to ping
    the domain controller from those computers by IP address and name. Also use
    ipconfig /all on those computers to make sure they are using the proper DNS
    servers which must be ONLY domain controllers and never an ISP DNS
