Well, actually, I haven't tried anything, since I have no idea what to try.
On our Novell system, when the password expires, a window pops up asking the
user to change the password. The user can also go into the Novell client and
change his password. I can't find anything like that. Yes, I have looked
through the docs, I've spent hours Googling the issue to no avail.
Let me make it simple for someone to answer. When a normal non-computer
literate user calls and asks how he changes his password, what would you tell
him? Please keep in mind that answers like RTFM are not good for job
