From time to time, a users SMB password will expire for fileserver1, while the normal user password will still work for FTP/SSH.  This occurs because it is also tied to the storm server.  In Thunder Bay, you can log into a storm account, change your password and be on your merry way.  In Orillia however, there are no more storm machines and you cannot connect to the TSC domain tree.

Fear not, from anywhere, you can SSH into fileserver1 and use the smbpasswd command to change your own password.  Just type smbpasswd at the command prompt and enter your old and new passwords.  (They can be the same too!)
