Password Policy not applied to a few account


  • Hi,

    We have Windows 2008 R2. In Default domain Policy, we set the Maximum password age to 180 days, however I noticed the password days is older than 180 days for a few accounts according to the "LastPWSet" AD attribute value. "Password Never Expired" are not checked in those accounts. What could cause the issue? Where should I look at?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,

    >>I think this account is not in use because its last login time is 11/01/2017, but the report I got by ADManager Plus didn't show the password is expired. 

    So, it's an expected behavior as the last login time is 11/01/2017.

    For the in-active account, I would suggest you disable it and move it to a specific OU.

    If there is anything else we can do for you, please feel free to post in the forum.

    Best Regards,
