I am trying to set a password expire age policy in WIN2k. I changed the maximum time from 42 to 1, just to test it... But it did  not take affect.

    is this a domain computer?
    are you using group policy to change the policy?

    only changes at the domain level GP will take effect for pw issues

    I will look into this but I think that the complexity and age requirements will not take effect until the next time the user changes their password.  Kinda a grandfather clause
    It will not automatically invalidate all active passwords..

    apply the gpo and then change a password for a user..
