Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's not expect to *not* be able to change the 
password on an IPA client after the initial setup, and be forced to use the IPA 
Server to re-set the password.  Granted, the client is OSX.

However, I personally have experience the inability to change a new user's 
password on an IPA client, and only on the IPA Server.  Unfortunately, I've 
been trying to reproduce this and I can not. I've tried on Fedora 19, and will 
try on RHEL next. 

Davis - Can you let me know your IPA Server and IPA Client versions? As well as 
the OS that the IPA Server is on?

Also, out of curiosity, do you have directions on how you set up the client on 
Mac OSX?
