Hi guys -

I'm clicking the "change password" button in OWA.

One of the fields that appears after you click the "change password" button has a slight glitch.

As you recall, the system prompts you to fill in the following after you choose to edit your password.

Domain Name:
Account:
Old Password:
New Password:
Confirm:

For me, automatically (it's magic!), the system inserts <domain name\uername> in the "account" field above.

But it CUTS OFF the domain name.

So, if my domain was "mountains" (9 characters) and user account is BZabaga, it will read like this:

Account: ountains\bzabaga

If I leave it be, it produces an error of course. So I have to clear it out of there and just put my account, or insert the missing "M".

WHY?!?!?!

I searched the registry and everywhere looking for a typo of some kind. Nothing. I thought at first maybe I mistyped during some setup/install point....but I don't think so.

Any help on this bizarre glitch would be nice.

-regards,
Bob the sane.

Well, I'm talking to myself here, but maybe posting the answer will HELP OTHERS that come across this:

----

One of the programmers at work showed me that the
file "aexp2b.htr" contains the source code that controls that option and generates the text. It just manipulates a few variables to obtain the domain and user names. The file itself sits in \winnt\system32\inetsrv\iisadmpwd\

My good co-worker made a few modifications to the file in "notepad" & said he could either blank it out for me, or have it insert the correct domain\username.

So, the incorrect data has been removed. Problem solved!

Bob,

Thanks for taking the time to post your fix. I am having the exact same problem and will take a look at that file.
