I am using win2003 DC and configured the group policy as below

Min. password age - 30 days
Max. password age - 31 days
Min. length of password - 3
Enfore password history - 12 passwords remember

With this policy, users are not able to change the password before expiring.
That means, it is accepting only after completing the max. age of the
password.

I want to change the password before expiration, but the same policy should
retain.

If someone has seen my password when i type, i have to change the same. but
it is not accepting to do.

Please suggest to fix this.
