Password expiry notification is not being displayed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone!

    My domain controller is on windows server 2008 R2 SP1 and clients have windows 7. I have set 40 days time period for expiry of client side password. In GPO settings i have defined that prompt should be displayed 3 days earlier to password expiry. However, some of my clients do not receive this notification and their password expires. 

    Please give some suitable solution for this problem.

    Regards,

    Muhammad Tayyab

  • Try changing it to the default 14 days and then check. If it's working fine, change it to 3 days and then check.

  • Hi,

    you can configure password expiry through group policy 

    Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Local Policies\Security Options under Interactive Logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration

    and check the setting applied to user by using rsop command in client computer. try it this will helpful for you.

  • 3 days is a very short notification window.  In my experience, it's not uncommon for users to not login for 3 days.  For example, a users password is set to expire on a Monday and the user is out of the office the Friday before.  By the time they return to the office, the following week, their password expired before they had a chance to see the notification.
