Hi all,

I'm attempting to prevent our users from changing their passwords from
Windows XP specifically.

I've tried settings acctflags in LDAP to:
acctFlags: [UPX        ]

(P for cannot change password)

and i've set:
pwdCanChange: 2147483647
pwdMustChange: 2147483647

Unfortunately, XP isn't honoring these fields.

What's the trick?
