I have a stand alone Windows 2000 workstation. This machine does not access the network. I want to change the MaximunPasswordAge from the default 42days to 90days. When I go into Local Security Setting, Password Policy, right click on Maximum Password Age there are 2 places that need to be changed. Security settings and Effective settings. I am logged on as Adminstrator and I change the security settings to 90 days. The effective settings is still 42 days until I reboot. Then both the Security settings and Effective settings register 90 days. For some reason the change does not stay. My user gets notification to change his password 28 days later and when I go back into Local security setting, password policy the settings are back to 42 days. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
