I have windows 2012 servers join to 2003 AD. Everything was working fine till i installed the latest windows updates around october/novemeber this year. Now my terminal server users cannot change their password when it expires or when i set "password most be change at next logon" in AD. Other windows 2012 servers that i have not install windows updates yet  are working fine. any help will be appreciated.

It seems that  "Minimum password age"  is not set to 0 days which may be preventing the user to change password. check the same ands set it to zero and see how does it work.

See this similar thread Password Complixity Error:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/43dcbc5f-e7e4-4aff-8d16-fa82a69690bb/password-complixity-error-while-change-password-through-owa 

By default in Win2003 domain you have one password policy applied at domain level in default domain policy you need to check the same.In case if you have multiple password policy then you need to check other policy too.

they are all under the default domain policy. on the server that is having the issue when i open locla computer policy--> password policy "minimun password age" is set to 0 days. i have 2003/2008/2012 servers whcih are also under the same default domain policy are working just fine. just this particular 2012 server is having issues after installing windows updates. it seems like one of the updates have change something within the security of this server and not allowing users to change their password. they can change it once logged in and hitting ctrl-alt-del then selecting change password but cannot change it at logon screen if their password expires or if we set "most change password at next logon" in AD.
