Win2000 Server, OSX and password changes.


S

Stuart Mainwaring

We have OSX machines (up to and including Panther) connecting to Win2000
server. All users profiles are set to change password on next logon.
Users are not prompted to change password and therefore cant logon. If
password is changed via a Windows machine the Mac users can connect
using SMB no probs.

We are not running Mac services and we have removed Appletalk from the
network. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I think we need to turn
on Mac sharing but cant see how this relates to password change requests
not working.

thanks

Stuart

Hi Stuart!

If you've removed Appletalk from the network and Mac File Services from the
server, then you are using SMB to connect to the server instead of AFP. You
will not have a password change option in your connection dialog.

If you were to have Mac File Services running on the server, you could
connect using "afp://ipaddress". You'd be presented with a connection window
where you can change passwords.

Hope this helps! bill
