Having problems with the reset password functions on the OSX server app. When I try to do through the command line it asks for the old password of the user. So how do I fix the problem? Do I have to log in onto the ldap server as the admin and reset from there or is there an easy fix to make the reset password function work. When I try the reset password function on the server app is not taking the input when I click on change password. So any helpful suggestions are welcome. Is resetting the server the only way to do it? Or is there a command to reset to reset the password from the command line?

Verson OSX lion 10.7.5

Thanks in Advance,
QUOTE Thanks
