Changing passwords/multiple domains

By jyimcse ·
Running multiple domains in W2K and NT 4.0 Server environment. Running Exchange 5.5 on W2K and using Outlook 2000 as client. On W2K domain, there are no problems changing the domain user/exchange mailbox password. On a different domain, the clientlogs on to that domain and uses Outlook to access the exchange server on W2K domain. Outlook askes for username, domain, and password. There are no problems connecting to the users mailboxes. But, there is an option to change password. This doesnot work on the clients that are not apart of the W2K domain. Error message "Your Windows NT password could not be changed. Please check the information and try again". Info is correct. Is this a problem with mixed W2K and NT 4.0 Server environments? Would the passwork change work with different NT 4.0 domains?

The end users and you as well might be better off having a single login and setting up trusting and trusted domains. That way there is only need for one password and username and could decrease any future migration headaches.

True, but that will be alot of work. I am talking about an environment with several domains. Coordination between administrators could take a long time. Before I start on the above endeavor, is it possible to change the passwords?

Mixed is a problem. WinNT4 cannot update any personal profile information dealing with mailboxes on a W2K system due to an incompatiblity in the PROTECTED STORAGE service between the two systems.
