Windows 7 users unable to change password on Server 2008r2
I know this is a Windows 7 forum, but technet hasn't been any help so far, so I'm giving this a shot.
Network is a Windows Domain with two Server 2008r2 Domain Controllers at the main location and 4 Server 2003 Domain Controllers, one at each of four branch locations.
Here's the problem;
Domain users are unable to change their domain passwords. If I use just the username, the message I receive is "The password does not meet the password policy requirements." etc. etc.
If I prefix with the domain (domain\username) then the error changes to "The attempt to change the password failed. The error code was 0xC0000064" That error code represents a nonexistent account.
Both error codes are just plain wrong. The account does exist and complexity requirements are being adhered to.
I recently applied a patch relevant to Server 2003, which botched two of my four branch DCs. I was able to return them to normal operation, but one of them is still acting a little strange so I'm in the process of building a replacement for it.
Again, I know this is a Windows 7 forum, but maybe someone who lurks here deals with domains as well and might have encountered this problem and found a solution.
