Win 2003 server files share password change

December 8, 2009 at 08:32:51
Specs: Windows
I have a windows 2003 AD server. I would like the
user to change password when they login to the share.
I have tried the option in properties so that the user must change password, but when the user logs in to the share it does not ask the user to change password. I have also expired the account and it gives me a separate error message. error: You do not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission.

Please let me how the user can get the change password screen.

Shares don't have passwords. That went away after Win98 since it is unsecure whereas server is secure.

User passwords concern authenication to the server/active directory. This gets them in the door. How you assign permissions to shares/folders decides what they can access on the server and at what level [full permissions/readonly whatever].

You can set when the user password expires or they can change it themselves after they have logged in by pressing control-alt-delete and selecting the button change password

I would suggest buying a 2003 server book.

Not quiet sure how I can get the screen to change password. I can go to start run, enter the ip of the server, enter the username
and password but there is no place to change the password
after the user logs on to the share.

wanderer already answered your question. Accessing a share does not allow for a user to change his/her AD password.
