XP Users unable to change passwords when you force them to? ('Change password at next logon' or users password expires etc.)
This is what happened to me after I used the MSBA (Microsoft Security Baseline Analyser) on my Windows 2000 Server. MSBA told me to tighten security by setting DWORD RestrictAnonymous to 2.
I have been informed that there are 3 solutions:
- Change the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\ControlSet001\Control\Lsa\RestrictAnonymous to a DWORD Value of 0. Give the server a restart .This is only a temporary solution mind - this didn't solve my problem - Get Q328817. This is not publicaly released yet, so give MS a call and demand that they give you the FTP address and password. - Wait for SP2 for Windows XP. This contains the fix. Obviously the recommended one is the patch - but if its not major, or if it can wait then looking forward to SP2 should be OK.
