Thanks for the reply Luis, maybe it is a windows issue but I thought 
maybe somebody in the mail list had some similar setup and if they had 
been able to change the password in windows. I got it to work in a 
previous setup once I changed the password encryption to yes. But in the 
new setup(only domain name change and new LDAP entries) it stopped working.
Luis, sorry for sending you an empty replay pushed the wrong button :-)
