    I have a remote user who wanted to change her password today before it
    expires in 3 days. She got a message : Netware Network

    You may need to change your password separately on NetWare 2.X and 3.x
    servers that are not part of a paswword sychronization scheme. Use SetPass
    (located in Sys/Public directory on Netware servers) to do this.

    After this was shown it was unable to change her password. I am running one
    server w/SBS2003 - that's it. Any ideas why she got this message and why her
    password would not change?

    Tell her to uninstall the Netware Client.

    She is using Remote Web Workplace to logon to a PC at our office. The PC is
    running Windows XP. No netware client .

    Has that PC ever had a Netware client installed? This message is definitely
    coming from a Netware component. Has the user installed a Netware client?

    Not that I know of. The office PC was rebuilt about 6 months ago after a
    virus. I wiped it clean and re-installed XP. Unless someone else put
    something on it. How would I check?

    Have a look at the properties of the network connection and see if there is
    any Netware items.

    Sure enough, the netware client was installed. I removed it and all is well.
    Thanks for the help.
