    Change Password Permissions

    I`ve created a snapin to allow teachers to change password but the allow user to change password tick box is greyed out, what permissions do I need to give users.

    You need to Delegate Control in AD Users and Computers i believe.

    So you put a tick in 'Reset user passwords and force password change at next logon'?

    Re: Change Password Permissions

    If you look in the delegate permissions there should be an option there to allow them to force change at next logon.

    Re: Change Password Permissions

    You can't force password change at next logon if "password never expires" is ticked in their account properties - the two are mutually exclusive. (I suspect Windows uses the password expiry feature to trigger the requirement to change at logon.)
