Cannot change Password

By Daygo_171 ·
I have an end-user running windows XP professional with the user profile being in the "users" group only. Although we have password expiration turned off for that user profile, once every 90 days the end-user must change her password for server (AS/400) authentication. When the end-user attempts to change the password on the local machine she gets the following error message:

"The user cannot change the password at this time"

Any ideas?

Am I understanding this correctly? The user logs in locally, but cannot change their password from the Users group in Computer Management? If that is the case, can you change it for them by logging in as local Admin? Sounds like that must be what you are doing for them if it gets changed somehow every 90 days.
