  • Prompt to change pwd before expiry ?

    Here's a fun one for you.

    My default domain policy has the setting "Interactive Login: Prompt to change Password before expiration" set at 7 days.

    I've run modelling on my boss, across a number of workstations, laptops and servers.. and it tells me this is definitely the winning GPO.

    Yet.. he's been being prompted for at least the past 14 days, with the timer counting down....


    Any ideas guys ?

    Only him or everyone else the GPO is applying to as well?

      i haven't seen it apply to anyone else at all yet.

      however, as another interseting note.. the guys who are never in the office, don't get prompted that their password is due to expire.. even if they open a vpn connectioin and lock the workstation then try and unlock it..

        Strange indeed. The remote users: even though they don't get the prompt, will their passwords expire eventually? Why does it seem that these quirky problems are more likely to strike our bosses (or bosses bosses) than Joe Schmoe in the warehouse?

          yes, the remote user passwords do definitely expire, and at a time when it's usually inconvenient for them to vpn in and change them.

          I might try setting up the OWA changepassword thinggy..
