Users unable to change password RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have an issue with Vista once it's added to our domain.  Our users can't change their password themselves, when prompted according to our policies.  We can change them using AD Users and Comoputers, but if they get the message "Your password has expired" and they click okay, they simply cannot change it.

    Any thoughts?

  • Getting the same issue here, it's almost as if the old functionality of "Users must be logged on in order to change password" has been added to Vista, but can't find any references to that (yet).

    Make sure Local Administrator hasn't set "User cannot change their password" in Computer Manage\Local Users and Groups

    Loca administrator accounts cannot manage domain accounts - it's the domain accounts that we're having the problem with.  However, the option for "User Cannot Change Password" is not checked in AD.
