W2k/Win NT4.5

By hmechan ·
Converted main server to W2000 4 weeks ago. Other server which is used for Zetafax still running NT.
Suddenly after easter holiday we cannot access the
NT box on a network drive and it says password expired when trying to make connection. Some people are still able to access network drive and run the zetafax client. No restrictions were in place before so no passwords required to run the zetafax client.What is causing password to expire on networked drive and how do we fix? Why does it allowsome people to access?

Check the properties of accounts that can't access the share - this error message usually suggests that the user is flagged as "must change password on next logon". You may not have had password expiry enabled before you installed Win2k - it is found in the Domain Group Policy.

Individual users password expiry status can be found in AD Users & Computers.
