  1. Hi , i have a Windows 2000 SBS, anda a few W2000 Workstations,
    i need the users to change their passwords, applied the checkbox on each
    user to change their password at next logon.

    everything works ok until they type they're new password with confirmation
    and everything, it says that the user are not authorized to change password,
    some of the users are Domain Admins

    any idea of this problem???

    thanks anyway

    Hi Carlos,

    If you look at the properties of one of these problem
    accounts, in the list of checkboxes for the account
    attributes there is one setting it so that user cannot
    change password. Is this cleared on the account?
