I work in the IT Department. I have about 3,000 Windows XP machines and just 10 Mac. The graphic designers have to be special. The macs have been bound to Active Directory. The issue that is causing me such headaches and sleepless nights is that when the Mac users change their domain password every 30 days, they get locked out of the printer server, intranet and entourage email (Exchange 2003).

How do I get the keychain to update the stored domain resource passwords (exchange, intranet, print server) with the new domain password? I really need these people to stop calling the helpdesk every 30 days.

The Macs run DAVE and do connect to Windows Shares. They are all brand new Macs running the latest OS Snow Leopard with all the updates.
Sorry if this is a double post. I don’t really know what to ask the Almighty Google.

Have you tried repairing the Keychain file through Keychain Access. Go to Keychain Access menu > Keychain First Aid > Repair.

You shouldn't have to do this every month though. Are your clients getting password countdowns at the login panel advising them how long until the next password reset? This should happen immediately after entering their AD logon details.
