W2K3-Clients changing pwds failure

By NateH ·
Hi all.

Strange problem. I have a small school with couple of domain controllers running Win2003 Server. There was only one server last year, and I added the 2nd one since there are really two different buildings and 2 sites. So each DC is set up as a separate site.

I set up group policy for passwords to expire within a certain time frame. When the users get the message to change their passwords they find that they cannot log back in with the new password. I have to go in as the admin and reset their passwords for them.

This has happened enough times that I don't believe it is user error

Any ideas/suggestions on what to look for?

I have not asked them to try using their old passwords yet, but will do so next time someone has this problem. But if the old one still works, whey did it not change?

Thank you
