NO PERMISSION TO CHANGE PASSWORD

By vpierce ·
We have a Win2k3 network with most users on terminal server. However, we do have 2 users that are still running NT4.0. Every time they try to change their network password they get a "No Permission...." error. What could be the problem?

The problem is likely due to the "RestrictAnonymous" registry setting preventing anonymous connections to the DC, which was required for earlier versions of NT to change passwords. I thought they had resolved this issue in SP3, but I could be mistaken. Are your clients running NT SP3 or earlier? If so your options are to upgrade them to SP4 or later, or to disable "RestrictAnonymous" on the server -- which I wouldn't recommend.

My NT users are at service pack 6.
