Differently Thinking Jason Level 1 Level 1

When they change the account password thought system perferences, the changes are not being passed to the DC and federated services server.


I have logged off and logged back in, And rebooted. If they open the login keychain it will update but is there any way a end user can change there password with out involving IT?

    One of our users has iMac, 10.6.8.

    She has not got any local account.

    She logs on to AD domain, with domain ID


    When after 40 days or so she is asked the change the password; it does not work.

    If we change it for here through AD or through another Windows PC, it works.


    Could you please let me know the best course of action for this type of users who are not administrators of iMac?

    I tested by changing my account's PAssword and it worked( I have administrative role).


    Kind regards
