I'm working for a small company where we have a Windows 2k server (with Active Directory) and a few windows 2k and xp client machines. Our password policy requires that password must be at least "7 characters long and has to have a conbination of UPPER case and lower case characters and some number". It used to work fine until now. But, now our employee accounts (and administrator accounts) wont be able to change the network password. We always get this message when we attempt to change the password: "This password on this account cannot be changed at this time."
Things we've tried:
- Reboot server, reboot client machines
- Change password policy (password can be anything)
- Password never expired
And the problem is still unsolved.
Has anyone got into this same prolem? Any idea how to solve it? Please let me know. Thanks.
