How can I fix the problem if a user forgets a password?

Question:
On a NetWare LAN, encrypted passwords are used. If a user forgets a password, is there a way for me to view the password?

Answer:
Log in with supervisor equivalence, or as someone who has the ability to manage the user's account. Reset the password to a known string, then put the password in expired state. The user can now log in and will be forced to change his or her password.
