Password change notification before expiration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. We have a terminal server on Windows Server 2012 R2. All we want to do is configure user passwords to expire periodically. According to the following page it is possible:

    Interactive logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration

    We asked the IT company that manages our server and they told us that this can be done only if the Windows Server 2012 R2 does NOT have the role as a terminal server. Is there a way to be able to do this on a terminal server?

  • Hi,

    If you are unhappy with the built-in notification you may write a script that runs at logon and displays a popup if their password is expiring within xx days, and/or have a script that runs once a day and sends out emails to people with passwords expiring within xx days.

  • Hi,

    Users connecting to RDS server should be able to see the Password Expiration notification, please ensure that notifications on the taskbar are not hidden.

    Best Regards,

    Amy

  • Hi Amy,

    Thank you for the suggestion. I want to post a screenshot, but I am not able yet with this account.

    Is a notification on the taskbar the only way to show that your password is going to expire on a terminal server? Are there more options for notifications? For example a pop up in the middle of the screen that your password is about to expire.
