Unable to change password, network address is invalid

When users try changing their passwords on their XP PC's, connected to a Windows Server 2008 R2 domain controller, they receive the following message:

"Unable to change the password on this account due to the following error:
1707: The network address is invalid"

What's causing this? Thanks!

do they have valid IP address? It could be a DHCP or DNS problem.

I would guess that you have a dns record for one of your domain controllers.  Check your DNS zone and verify that the records for you local domain that are names (same as parent folder) all have ip addresses of your domain controllers in the data column.

Make sure the XP stations are pointing to your R2 server for DNS only and your R2 server points to itself only for DNS in their TCP\IP settings.
Do you have Novell Netware Client ???
Do you have DameWare Mini Remote Control installed ?
