We run an Windows network with AD and have a few Mac computers. When the 90 day password policy expires the Macs are prompted to change their password like everyone else except we can never get their keychain to update. Instead they have to enter their normal network password and then their keychain password. If we want to synch these it is a manual job. Is there anyway to auto synch the two?

And it never will :(  This is the problem with Keychains and the AD LDAP implementation.  What you will have use is an app called Keychain minder.

Set this app to run at login.  When it notices that the Keychain password and the login passwords are different, it will prompt the user to update their password for keychain to the new login password.
