access denied message when changing network password

Hi,

For some unknown reason we are unable to change any network passwords on 98SE machines (get access denied message). I have looked all through MS KB articles and everything relating to it doesn't seem to work. Win2K & WinXP machines can change passwords.

Looked at all permissions on the Win2K Server machine, and all seem to be ok. We used to be able to change passwords on 98SE but in the last couple of days we now can't.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

You might want see if on the Server you have the "Users must log on in order to change password" box checked. If so.... uncheck the box.
