  • Hello,

    Yes you can do this by going to each user's Property:-

    Step 1:
    Open Active Directory Users and Computers and select “Advanced Features“ under “View” tab.
    Step 2:
    Navigate to the Users account and select its properties.

    Step 3: Click the “Attribute Editor” tab.

    Step 4: Scroll attribute values and select pwdLastSet field. Modify it by entering 0 (zero) in the
    value field. Click OK. This sets the value to (Never) as in the password has never been set. Click
    OK on the User Account Properties box.

    This is how you can achieve this task.

  • Thank you Sir it has worked but in the last step after setting the Value to 0 i just Click Apply and then again Set the Value to  -1 then it worked out for me. By simply setting to 0 it only set the password value to "never set" but when you put the -1 value there it will set it  to  the current AD date.
