Remarks

The NetUserSetInfo function can be called to change a user's password only by users or applications having administrative privileges. However, the password can be changed by users or applications knowing the current password and calling NetUserChangePassword. When an administrator calls NetUserSetInfo, the only restriction applied is that the new password length must be consistent with system modals.

Members of the Administrators local group can set any modifiable element. All users can set the usri2_usr_comment, usri2_parms, and usri2_country_code, elements of the user_info_2 data structure for their own accounts. To do this, the user must use the ParmNum parameter and cannot pass the whole structure.

A member of the Account Operator's local group cannot set details for an Administrators class account, give an existing account Administrator privilege, or change the operator privilege of any account. If attempting to change the privilege level or disable the last account with Administrator privilege in the database, NetUserSetInfo fails and returns NERR_LastAdmin.

You can call NetUserSetInfo with USER_INFO_1 and specify a value using the usri1_name member. However, that value will be ignored. The correct way to specify the new name of the group is to call NetUserSetInfo with USER_INFO_0 and specify a value using the usri0_name member.

The NetUserSetInfo function cannot be used to change the home directory for user accounts that were not created by the Net server.

Return Values

If the function is successful, it returns NERR_SUCCESS.

If the function fails, the return value is one of the following error codes.

Value

Meaning

ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED

The user does not have access to the requested information.

NERR_InvalidComputer

The computer name is invalid.

NERR_NotPrimary

The operation is allowed only on the primary domain controller of the domain.

NERR_SpeGroupOp

The operation is not allowed on specified special groups, which are user groups, admin groups, local groups, or guest groups.

NERR_LastAdmin

The operation is not allowed on the last administrative account.

NERR_BadPassword

The share name or password is invalid.

NERR_PasswordTooShort

The password is shorter than required.

NERR_UserNotFound

The user name could not be found.
