Prompt to Reset Expired password RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have policies to renew passwords periodically, but when password expired users are just prompted saying password expired.

    What I want to know is, if there is any option to remind password expiry in RDS when I configure group policy the password expiry.

    Also it would be better if users get a prompt to change the password when they use RDSapp.

    Regards,

    Qadir

  • Hi Qadir, 

    You could maybe have a PowerShell script to query the user account password expiration date. If its close to expiring, they could be prompted via a message box advising the user to press ctrl-atl-end to reset their password?

    This might help too http://www.puryear-it.com/blog/2013/11/19/windows-server-2012-rds-users-arent-able-change-passwords-expiration/
