JSI Tip 7516. When you are prompted to change your password when logging on to a Windows Server 2003 domain controller from Windows XP SP1, you receive 'You do not have permission to change your password'?

The subject behavior may occur if all of the following are true:

1. The Windows Server 2003 domain controller has the NT4Emulator value enabled.

2. The client is running Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1).

3. The client types a password that does not comply with the security requirements.

The error should read something like:

Your password must be at least x characters and cannot repeat any of your previous y passwords. Please type a password that meets these requirements in both text boxes.

NOTE: See When a domain user attempts to change their password during logon, they receive 'You do not have permission to change your password'?
