I have recently upgraded my windows 2000 dc to 2003, now users are unable to change their network password from their 200 workstations, getting the error, “You do not have permission to change your password”.   This problem also occurs for new users, when they login for the first time.  The everyone group has change password permissions set on the user and computer.
Thanks!

I was able to resolve the problem by removing the device from the computer OU in AD.  Then from the workstation I added it to a workgroup and rejoined it to the domain.
