My user is using MacBook with Snow Leopard OS version 10.6.3, I am using Windows network at office with Active Directory, based on password policy in company; user has to change password for every 50 days.

In order to let MacBook user access to Windows file server, I added Windows account and password to key chain in MacBook but I think that if the password in AD is expired, she has no longer access to the folder on Windows server.  Is there any way to allow user change the password on MacBook and sync to AD?  Or, what is the best practice to manage it?

Thanks

you'll want to join the Mac to the Windows domain, don't just save the password in the Keychain. Then the user can change the Mac logon password whenever tey have to, just like they do on a PC. It's a bit of pain to set up because so many different things can cause it not to work properly, but here's a PDF with some basic instructions:
