Domain policy doesn't seem to update
Posted on 2004-09-01
In the domain policy, on a Windows 2000 Domain Controller, I set the security policy to warn a user 14 days before their password needs to be changed. This change was made 2 months ago.
I found out today (the hard way) that a user was forced to change their password without getting any warning at all. They had to change it upon login.
Since this change to policy was made 2 months ago, and there was a change, the policy certianly would have been updated by now without me having to run secedit /refreshpolicy.
Does anyone have any ideas why this may have happened? I do not know if it's happened on other machines in the office, but that's the direction I am headed in troubleshooting next.
