    Hello All
    I have a question that I am hoping someone can help me with. Where I work we
    have five seperate domains and hence five active directories. All of the
    domains are joined together by a second network card for backup purposes. As
    we have five networks some users have five accounts and this becomes a
    problem for passwords. I have set up trusts between all of the active
    directories and I can look at the users and computers on one domain from
    another but every time I try to change the password on the remote domain I
    get an access is denied error. I have also tried to do this through VB
    scripting and when the script writes the new password I get a runtime error
    70. I get the feeling I am missing something small and even looking around it
    may have something to do with DCOM but I am not an IT person by qualification
    so I am not sure what I am looking for. I am looged in to all domains as
    Administrator when trying this and our networks are server2003 sp 1. Thanks
    for any help
