  • Expired user accounts to change password at next logon

    Hi! Guys,

    Our org has the maximum password policy set. From what I understand, once a user's password in AD (win2003) expires, the user can no longer log-in and needs an administrator to interfere before he is allowed log-on to the network again.
    Is there any way we can allow users with expired password to be prompted with the change password window (so long as they can provide the old password too) instead of the contact your administrator alert?

    Appreciate your help in advance.

    I don't think so, as that would circumvent the security. I believe it will warn them before it expires to change it though, and on the last day it is valid, it should force them to reset it. Been a while though

      Users are warned to change their password every time they log in for 14 days prior to the experation date.

      Its a great way to identify the rocket scientists in your company that ignore the warning for 14 days then call you on a Saturday because they can't log in.

        Hi! Guys,

        Thanks a lot for your prompt response.
        We have noted those already and have explained it well to him. Unfortunately, th rocket scientist is the CEO/CIO.

        He usually goes on long offshore trips and would end up not being able to access OWA or his email using RPC over HTTPs as his password has already expired.
        Appreciate your suggestions on how to work around this.

          Exclude his password from expiring, disable it when the auditors come around...

            Have him reset his password before the trips, so he's not inconvenienced
