I want to change the administrator password

Hi all,

I want to change the administrator password.

When I am logged on as administrator and try to change the password I receive the following message;

1359: An internal Error has occurred. Please consult your system administrator.

I used Google and discovered there should be an error in the log

Event 1126 Unable to establish connect with global catalog But it was not there…

I have searched the help the best I can, but I can´t seem to find a minimum or maximum time for the current password.

If I change to the max password to one day would it prompt the password to be changed or would error 1359 appear again?

What can I do?

Hello Bridget,

You will need to make sure that you're validating domain controller that can be able to access a GC server. In order to check that, you will need to verify which domain controller authenticated you.

You can make use  of the Winmsd tool or you can just check the LOGONSERVER environment variable by simply typing the following command at a command prompt: echo %logonserver%

After that, you will need to check the Event log under Directory Service. You may encounter the following error message:

Event 1126 Unable to establish connect with global catalog

Note  that problem affects those users whose user principal name as well as down-level account name do not match.

Regards,

Carl
