Getting error changing Windows server client password


G

Guest

We have a Windows 2000 server running with client password policy activated.
Clients are prompted to change their password each 60 days. We are running a
cross platform environment (Mac OSX 10.3 and 10.4 and Windows XP SP2) and the
problem is that our Mac users can't change their password using the SMB/CIFS
protocol only if they connect via AFP protocol. We get the following error
when using samba: "The Finder cannot complete the operation because some data
in smb://10.59.10.75" could not be read or written (Error code -36)." Is
there anyone who has experienced the same problem ?

What kind of complexity requirements does your policy require? Typical
high security policy would use alpha UPPER/lower case characters,
numbers and special symbols like !@#$...

This information won't be conveyed to Mac users by the server. They just
have to know it.

You also might try installing the free Microsoft UAM from Microsoft's
website
<http://www.microsoft.com/mac/otherproducts/otherproducts.aspx?pid=window
s2000sfm>. It allows for secure authentication with the server instead
of using plain text. Your server may require this security from the Macs.

Hope this helps! bill
