Re: Change Password using CIFS???

No its not.
Its only an XP workstation with the MS client...

A domain member ?
I can look into it, but I my tests are more accurate assuming its just
a
w/s.

Thanks for your help,
Sean

Well, without the computer being in the domain, you can't logon as a domain user, and therefore won't get an option to change your domain password.

Re: Change Password using CIFS???

I understand.
But its still strange that a workstation cannot be standalone, but map
to
network drives,
AND change your password...
If it was using a different protocol, I would understand, but it is
using
native MS protocols.

OK, but again, that has nothing to do with Novell -- it's purely
native
MS stuff, as you said.
