In Microsoft Windows XP and later versions, machine account password settings can also be configured by using Group Policy Editor (Gpedit.msc). To configure these settings, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type Gpedit.msc, and then press ENTER.
2. Expand Local Computer Policy, expand Windows Settings, expand Security Settings, expand Local Policies, expand Security Settings, expand Local Policies, and then expand Security Options.
3. Configure the following settings:
• Domain Member: Disable machine account password changes (DisablePasswordChange)
• Domain Member: Maximum machine account password age (MaximumPasswordAge)
• Domain Controller: Refuse machine account password changes (RefusePasswordChange)
