password

Anyone know where I can set so that users have to change there password every 6 months.  Right now it automatically force the users to change it every month or two which I don't want.  I don't know where to change that setting to 6 months.  We have Windows 2003 SB and users have XP and 2000.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you are in a domain you can edit the Default Domain Policy under Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Account Policies -> Password Policies and make the change under Maximum Password Age.  If you are not in domain thne you can configure that setting on each machine locally by going into the Local Security Policy under Administrative Tools.
