Windows 95/NT Passwords
Posted on 1997-04-04
We have a network of 3 NT 4.0 servers and about 65 Windows 95 clients. Our aim is for any user to use any workstation with no password issues - i.e. using ONLY Windows NT to authenticate passwords. The problem I have is that when a user logs onto a 95 workstation NT authentication takes place OK but then it will try to validate a Windows password using a locally stored .pwl file. This causes problems when a user changes their password when not on their own workstation - the .pwl file on their own workstation is not updated so they can not then log on at their normal machine. How can I completely disable the Windows password mechanism while still being able to browse the network?
