Hi,

i've run into a problem lately when i put a password policy in place. I created a policy to change everyones password at next logon

The only problem i came across was with 98. It wont allow me to change their windows networking password. they can logon to the machines, but not the domain.

I've deleted the .pwl files, but as far as i know this only deletes the logon to the machine.

Can anyone tell me how to change their microsoft networking password???


Regards,

UCC

There are some things to do with Windows 98. First, install dsclient for Windows98, it's on server's CDROM or on Microsoft site.
Now, Go to Network properties and make all users to autheticate from domain, the logon screen must show:
Username
Password
Domain

You may use the following registry modification to avoid caching passwords (pwl file wont be created)

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Network]
"HideSharePwds"=dword:00000001
"DisablePwdCaching"=dword:00000001

To change Network password, go to Control Panel/Passwords, you have an option to change other passwords, and when opened you'll see Microsoft Network Password.
