Changing User Passwords on NT4.0

By graemeduncan ·
When any of my users are prompted to change their network password they cannot do so and are presented with the helpful message of "Unable to change the password for Microsoft Networking because of the following error: Access has been denied"

I can't see anything wrong with the user profiles.

I am running NT4.0 SP 6

Any ideas?

Event viewer may provide some insight into this.

Also, Go to Usermanager. Highlight a user that cannot change the password and select Policies -> Account. Make sure that "Users must log on in order to change password" is NOT checked. Also checkother password restrictions: Password length, uniqueness, etc.

Partly worked, I can now change the password but when I try to change it again it now tells me that my current password has expired. The entry for password expiration is blank under Policies, Account.

Any ideas
