Windows Server 2003

I have a Windows Server 2003 setup as a domain controller with active directory. It's seems to have a problem updating passwords. Even if a user gets a notice when they are logging in that their "password will soon expire, do you want to change it", and they click yes to change it, it doesn't seem to work. They usually start having authentication issues. I usually have to log into the server and go to active directory users and groups, right click on the user having the problem, and reset the password. Then the problems go away.

How many other Domain Controllers exist within the domain?
Is this server the DNS Server, or is another providing the service?

"log on to local machine" (on the server) rights come to mind - i think the default policy setting suggets auntenticated users and or domain users? Just a thought :)

I have 3 domain controllers. The server I'm talking about is also the DNS server.

Then Active Directory synchronization is an issue between the Domain Controllers.  Check which DC the users having the synch issues logged on then look for CPU, memory or network problems with that DC.
