Can't change Passwords - MACS



After the 90 day expiration of MAC passwords, it prompts you to change your
password, but the password won't change. Any Ideas? We are using OS9 and OSX
with Server 2000

A couple of situations that can cause this are:

1.) User doesn't have permissions to change their password.
2.) The password you are attempting to change to does not meet Windows
minimum strength policy setting (at least 1 capital/lowercase letter, 1
number and 1 symbol in each password). So you password needs to be something
like [email protected]!

If this doesn't help a look at the server response using network monitor or
the server event logs to find error codes of the change attempt should be
the next steps to resolving this issue.
