    Users cannot change password on Win2k8 server

    We have a non-dc Win2k8 terminal server. For some reason, when a user logs
    in either via rdp or console, they cannot change their password. When they
    try to change their password it says "username or password is incorrect".
    This is affecting all users even domain admins (me). Ive checked all gpo's
    and nothing really stands out. Thoughts?

    Hello gjl_support,

    Make sure to have the reuqired password settings correct, according to the
    GPO on domain level, except you use fine grained password policy on the OU
    where the server is located.

    Best regards

    All password settings and gpo's are at default. I have moved the user back
    to the Users OU and it is still happening.

    Re: Users cannot change password on Win2k8 server

    Test to see if the user can change the password outside of the TS
    enviroment. At times I've had the TS keyboard get into a numlock condition
    and had certain keys interpretted incorrectly. This only occured within the
    TS session not when first establishing the TS session.

    Re: Users cannot change password on Win2k8 server

    Users cannot change their password on this server regardless of how they are
    connected, whether it be rdp, vnc, or console.

    Re: Users cannot change password on Win2k8 server

    Hello gjl_support,

    Maybe the server has connectivity problems to reach a DC, please post an
    unedited ipconfig /all from it and also from the DC/DNS servers.

    Best regards
