SYMPTOMS

When you try to change passwords on a Windows NT Server from AppleTalk or Banyan Vines clients, the attempt fails.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT version 3.51. This problem was corrected in the latest Windows NT 3.51 U.S. Service Pack. For information on obtaining the Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):
