Unable to change account properties like: "password never expires", to the Administrator account
Posted on 2004-09-07
I need tthe administrator of my Windows 2000 domain to have a password that expires, like everybody else. To do it, i go to the Account Tab in the properties of the Administrator account and i find that every checkbox from "Password never expires" to the bottom is simply disabled, i cannot change them, and of course the option "Password never expires" is activated.
I think that this is the only account i have this problem with.
I would like to know if it is possible to set an expiration for the administrator account. If its not and this behavior is by design, i would like a reference from Microsoft (article) describing such behavior.
