Cannot change password because domain in not availible (wireless)

I have the an issue chaning password but the interesting thingis I can logon as a new domain user (never before logon to notebook) and it creates a profile and validates logon but whwn I go to change password (right after logon) it gives me the same error. If it can find the server to do a new logon it should be able to change password.

Hi

This is funny behaviour.

What does the laptop say after logging in when you issue the command:    set logonserver

If this is your DC, can you ping it? and secondly, is it your primairy DNS server? (check with ipconfig /all)

Hi again,

I found an hotfix for this issue described on this webpage, it is here.

Once logged in the computer you hit Control Alt Delete and select change password the username name is filled in like:

•contoso\user1
•user1@contoso.com

You should be able to alter the way XP fills it it to the second possibility, very curious if then you can change the password?!

Neither of those style of logons work.  It is puzzling since I can add a new Domain user profile to the system.but can not change the password. I would think that If there was some name resolution issue it would go both ways  (not being able to log a new user in or getting a password)

Oops, did it show a dutch page? In that case you should click the line that says 'Hotfixes voor het platform en de taal van uw browser weergeven (0) '

This will show you all platforms in all languages available.
