Enable Domain Password Change Policy on Sharepoint Server

I can't imagine I'm the only one who has run into this issue.  We are currently running two IIS servers.  The box, running IIS 6 on Server 2003 maintains our domain password change policy.   When new users are created, and are required to change password, if they access the site hosted on that box, they are re-directed to our Password Change site.

However, with implementing WSS 3.0 on the Server 2008 box running IIS 7..some of these same users might access the Sharepoint site before hitting the site on the Server 2003 box.  So when prompted for login, they get the 3 prompts and just a blank screen.  

I've seen the sites like (http://www.sharepointboost.com/passwordchange.html) and others than enable webparts within sharepoint to change passwords, but that is not what I'm looking for.

I need to be able to implement the same domain password policy on the Sharepoint box that I currently have running on the initial IIS box...what approach do I need to take?

It might not be possible.  Sharepoint uses it's own custom ISAPI DLL that doesn't integrate well with anything.

Do you have your own code doing the reset?

This isn't a sharepoint problem as much as it is an IIS-related problem. I should be able to create a a website on IIS7 like on IIS6 and when a password needs to be changed it redirects them to IISADMPWD. I understand IISADMPWD no longer exists in IIS7.... where do I take it from here?

I just wanted to be clear that you understood the issue and could not do it with any IIS site used by Sharepoint.

There is no support for IISADMPWD in IIS 7 and I found a few articles on how to do it anyway I can't recommend anything that might put your server at risk.  Sorry but if you want to remain in a supported state it appears there isn't a solution

Thanks for your response.  You say you found articles on how to it...are they Microsoft KB articles?

Ted BouskillSenior Software DeveloperCommented:
No they weren't KB articles.  They were articles by other users that explicitly stated it wasn't supported and to do it at your own risk.

Ok, so it is plausible, but if it puts network at risk, we'll have to deal with how we do it now.  Thanks for your help.
