change password remotely

By smilko ·
On a peer to peer network, I can change a remote PC's password by doing a crt+alt+del and typing the the user name password and computer name. But for some reason I can only do it once. If I try to do it again right away I get the error message: You do not have permission to change your password. Does anyone know why this happens and is there a way to work around it?

Hi.
It sounds like a local password policy that once you change your password you cannot change it again for (X) days. It would be in the group policy editor Under Computer Configuration-->Windows Settings-->Security settings-->Password polic--> Minimum password age

Hope this helps!

Thanks for post Howie but that didnt work. I have the minimum password age policy in the the local group policy set to 0 allow change immediately and it still sends the message You do not have permission to change your password.

Shot in the dark -- does it require a relogin with the new username and password before it can change again? I'm on domain or I'd try it myself...

Thanks for the post BSchmidt I tried that, I tried logging in and out of both PC's, I even tried rebooting them both and I still get the error. It seems that I can only change the password as long as there is no password set on the remote PC.
