Windows NT Domain Does Not Accept New Domain Password


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows 95


When you attempt to log on to a Windows NT domain with an account whose password has expired from a Windows 95-based computer with password synchronization enabled, a dialog box appears prompting you to change your password. When you enter the old password and then the new password, you receive a message stating the password has been changed successfully, and then the following error message appears:

The Domain password you supplied is incorrect, or access to your logon server has been denied.

You must then click OK and enter the new domain password again.


Once the initial logon request has been serviced by the Windows NT domain controller and the password change has taken place, the Windows 95 network provider (Msnp32.dll) performs another logon request using the original password, not the new one. This can result in accounts being locked out if the account lockout policy is enabled.


This issue is resolved by the following updated file for Windows 95, and later versions of this file:

   MSNP32.DLL  version 4.00.953  dated 8/20/97  67,584 bytes 


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Windows 95. An update to address this problem is now available, but is not fully regression tested and should be applied only to computers experiencing this specific problem. Unless you are severely impacted by this specific problem, Microsoft does not recommend implementing this update at this time.
