  • Password Expiration

    I have a small query. Is there a way to set expiration to the password when it is set for the first time during the user creation. Also, when we reset the password, can we set an expiration for the same.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Password Expiration

    You set password expiration through a domain level group policy and it applies throughout the domain.

    At 2008 FL, you can create fine-grained password policies which allow you to over-ride this for individual users or groups but this is not an easy task.

      Thanks for the reply. So, there is no way it can be done on 2003 AD?

        Re: Password Expiration

        Please clarify: Are you asking if you can create fine-grained password policies in 2003 AD? Or are you asking if password expiration in general can be set up in 2003 AD?

        Please describe more of your scenario and why you're asking this question.

          Hi,

          As mentioned by Ossian password exipration would be controlled by default domain policy.

          If i have got your question correctly
          Is there a way to set expiration to the password when it is set for the first time during the user creation. Also, when we reset the password, can we set an expiration for the same


          You can do it via vbscript or powershell by setting the expiration dates of choice unless you don't want to modify the default domain policy.
          Thanks & Regards

            Surely that is account expiration, not password expiration.

            Until fine grained passwords in 2008 I know of no way (except messing around with GPO security filtering) to enable different expiration policies
