Luke, is your PDC Emulator on-line? Win9x and NT4 clients without the
DSclient installed always try to find the DC with this FSMO role, if
they can't find it they won't be able to change passwords.

Take a look from AD Users&Comp, right click on your domain name,
Operation Masters, PDC, to discover which DC has this role.

Good luck!

I know this isnt a strictly e2k quiestion, but seeing as it directly
affects it, i thought id ask!!

Ive recently migrated from nt4 to w2k and AD, as well as e2k.

All works brilliantly except for one thing.  The users cannot change
their w2k passwords - they are running nt4 ws, which i didnt think was a
problem.  Basically their password expires and they are asked to change
it when they login, but it doesnt allow them to change the p/w.

I CAN change my password, and i thought it had something to do with me
being a admin, but ive run some tests and it doesnt appear to make a

Anyone have any ideas as im going mad manually changing passwords for my
