If you delegate control to a domain local group in Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, and then you assign the group the Reset passwords on user accounts permission (the "User-Force-Change-Password" extended right) for an organizational unit (OU), when a member of the group forces a password change for a user in the OU, the following failure audit event is logged in the security event log on the domain controller:
Subsequently, the following success audit events are logged in the security event log:
Event Type: Failure Event Source: Security Event Category: Account Management Event ID: 628 User: MYDOMAIN\MyLocalGroupMember Description: User Account password set: Target Account Name: Target Domain: MYDOMAIN Target Account ID: MYDOMAIN\TestUser Caller User Name: MyLocalGroupMember Caller Domain: MYDOMAIN Caller Logon ID: (0x0,0x83C437)
The failure audit event ID 628 does not occur when a global group is delegated the reset password permission to the OU.
Event Type: Success Event Source: Security Event Category: Account Management Event ID: 642 User: MYDOMAIN\MyLocalGroupMember Description: User Account Changed: - Target Account Name: TestUser Target Domain: MYDOMAIN Target Account ID: MYDOMAIN\TestUser Caller User Name: MyLocalGroupMember Caller Domain: MYDOMAIN Caller Logon ID: (0x0,0x83C1BD) Privileges: - Event Type: Success Event Source: Security Event Category: Account Management Event ID: 628 User: MYDOMAIN\MyLocalGroupMember Description: User Account password set: Target Account Name: Target Domain: MYDOMAIN Target Account ID: MYDOMAIN\TestUser Caller User Name: MyLocalGroupMember Caller Domain: MYDOMAIN Caller Logon ID: (0x0,0x83C1BD)
The failure audit event ID 628 occurs because the first attempt to change the target account password is submitted by the client computer by using the Kerberos "kpasswd" User Datagram Protocol (UDP) protocol. The "kpasswd" datagram token does not contain domain local group security identifiers (SIDs). The token is sourced in the KRB_AS_REQ/KRB_AS_REP ticket that is obtained during user logon. The server response uses an internal Security Accounts Manager (SAM) function to enumerate group membership for the user. Domain local groups are not returned in this list of account SIDs (the token).
The second attempt is successful (success audit event IDs 642 and 628) because the password change is retried by using the SAM Remote Procedure Call (RPC) interface to set the user password.

To work around this problem, delegate the Reset passwords on user accounts permission to global groups instead of to domain local groups.
