Changing Password w/o Ctrl-Alt-Del

We are running client 4.90 SP2d in a NW 6.0/6.5 and Windows AD environment.
Our primary GINA is MSGina.dll (not NWGina.dll) in order that we can
authenticate first to AD. The Change Password option via Ctrl-Alt-Del has
been disabled from an AD policy. Is there a way to change our Netware
passwords without using the Change Password button? If we go into the
Novell Password Administration and click on the Change Password button, it
tells us to use Ctrl-Alt-Del!

TIA
-Larry

I haven't had to use it yet, but there is also the following change
cited for NOVNPNT.DLL in the latest "PKC" update:

"10. When NWGINA is in Passive Mode or disabled, there isn't a way to
change eDirectory Passwords. (178245)"

I just threw PKC on and looked, and I think you just need to go back
to the same "Novell Password Administration" option that told you to
go press CTRL-ALT-DEL.

It still sends you to CTRL-ALT-DEL if NWGINA.DLL is active, but if you
turn off "Initial Novell Login" or otherwise revert to MSGINA.DLL, now
that same button actually brings up the change password dialog.

Is setpass.exe still shipping with NetWare 6.x?

I checked mine. Doesn't appear to be so.
