  • GPO password problems by some users


    We recently changed the password policy from 30 to 90 days, now on the most computers it`s affective but a few still have to change their password after 30 days.
    If i look on the computer in Gpedit.msc it also gives a period off 90 days.

    Have the machines been rebooted?
    Is it the same operating system giving you the problem?

      Open a command prompt and type gpupdate /force to force the application of the computer and user policies.
      A recent poll suggests that 6 out of 7 dwarfs are not happy

          Have you used gpresult to interrogate the affected systems?

            Password policies are computer settings and as such affect the local user account database on the server or workstation. For AD user accounts that user account database is the AD database. Looking at the setting on a member server or workstation is showing you the setting as it applies to local user accounts on that member server or workstation. To see the policy as it affects AD user accounts you need to view it on your Domain Controllers by running the Group Policy Results wizard against your Domain Controllers. This will show you the password policy that will be applied to your AD user accounts.

            Additionally, are any of these users affected by a Fine-Grained Password Policy?
