TNG at 2.5.2 can change passwords, but it has some problems with
locking ;)

So I think 2.6 (when it comes out) will be pretty good .. ;)
(login + change pw + locking .. ;)

it works fine here with tng 2.5 and NT4 sp5/6 clients, Check it whith the
usrmgr, if you are in the right group. Check if those mappings are
world-readable (?)

I did use admin="Domain Admins" in the file.
