Hello all,

We have a Server running MS Server 2008, Active Directory and we have about 75 users on that domain. Our Exchange server 2008 and OWA as well as our SharePoin tare tied into that domain controller.

Lastnight, we created and enforced the password complexity policy within server 2008. This morning, the phone was ringing off the hook because users could not login.

When they would goto OWA to login, they would get their normal login prompt, but once they put their correct login info (user name and password) into the login box, it would loop them right back to asking them for their login info again. No error, nothing telling them to change their password etc.

Is their a lnk within OWA or some other link that would allow end users of this domain to change their password ? We are at a loss. We had to roll the policy back and remove it for now. But CEO is not happy. Please help ASAP.

Thanks !!
