  • Password renew reminder is not poping up

    Hi All,

    We upgraded our few sytems to 2008 r2 (64), domain controllers are still running on 2003 st editions.

    Now on 2008 r2 servers when log on, a reminder message that password needs change after xx days isnot appearing, i can see a lttlie security key picture on taskbar next to my clock.

    can any one please tell me how to change any settings so I can have password reminder window instead of tiny security key icon?

    Thanks
    S

    Hi,


    That little security lock could be of windows activation

    The password reminder comes when it reaches or crosses the threshold.
    This will be under default domain policy GPO

    settings are located here Computer Config > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Account Policies > Password Policy
    Thanks & Regards

      That little key icon is password reminder (I am 100% positive) because when I hoover my mouse over to the icon it says consider changing your password, Password policy is already is configured but still on 2008 r2 servers its not popping up.

      Another thing as per MS, its a default behaviour on 2008 r2 and by default it starts appearing (the key icon) 5 days before.

      All other servers are OK but 2008 R2.

      Any advice please?
