There are some differences between UserManager.Server.ChangePassword method and UserManager.User.Password write property.
- ChangePassword method of Server object can call only logged-on user. There is no need to know user name, password for current user is to change. But user must know an old password. Similar like crtl-alt-del -> change password.
- Password write property of User object can call ONLY administrator (or account operator). You do not need to know an old password. Similar like account manager -> set password.
