Its KDM, I'm unsure what you mean by "when did it started to work".

Dude, you wrote "It started showing password expiration notice." and
therefore I guessed this never worked before. But from your last mail
I'm now sure you've never seen it before. Never mind.

was always working - i.e. logging with a domain user/pass. It's just a
company policy that passwords expire, and I need to change mine.

Well, and if that happen "passwords expiration" then the display manager
_must_ inform you. And this worked in the past. We have tested this
heavily as we have huge deployments which are using this feature.

What is the opensuse way to change my password for the domain?

Both display managers (kdm/ gdm) had been able to handle this quite
well.  If this doesn't work any longer please file a bug report.

I.e. you mean - when I try to login, and it no longer let's me in, I
can change the password from the login screen?

Yepp. Very, very close to the way a Microsoft domain member handles

Or the KDM has
somewhere option to change password - I could not find it, that's why
I ask.

KDE and Gnome guys: Help!
