How configuring Password expiry banner in OWA 2003

i already have configured the password change button in OWA options, it works perfectly.

i also have implemented a password expiry policy that informs user 5 days before to change their password.

i just need to have that yellow banner in OWA which pops up. how can i configure that? or does it automatically pops up for OWA users when the password expires?

it will not popup, it will be a warning message on the top of the OWA

thats exactly what i need. do i have to configure this separately or does it happen automatically?

no automatically, but you will have to configure password change function in OWA, did you do that

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

yes,i have done that alreasy and it works fine. the time expiry policy has also been set for 30 days and 4 days before the users will receive a password expiry notification.

will that happen also in OWA or do i have to do any additional tasks?

Here's your solution, I just fixed mine. Evidently the update for daylight savings (KB926666) broke the yellow password expiration message banner seen in OWA 2003.

Follow the steps in this KB article and it will work again:

Note: I had to manually create the key in Step 1. Step 6, I did not have to reboot.

but did you upgrade to exchange 2003?

we had originally an exchange 5.5 environment, but paralles we did build up a pure exchange 2003 organization. therefore, no upgrade from 5.5 or 2000

does that manual you posted still work?

Boxexpert, We are trying to assist, kindly use a more friendlier tone.

No, I migrated from 5.5 to 2003, seperate domains.

Yes, the KB article still works. I used it this past Monday to get my password message to appear.

You may want to also reference this to ensure your IIS is set properly: http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=1375392&SiteID=17 . I would try the former KB article first, as my IIS was set properly.

on which server do i have to add those settings? schema master or any other DC?
0
roomstoreCommented:
Box,

Any DC should do, but I did perform these steps on the DC which holds the Schema master FSMO role. Then I used replmon.exe to ensure that all my DC's had replicated the change.

0
boxexpertAuthor Commented:
and step 1 has also to be done on the schema master too,right`?
0
roomstoreCommented:
Any DC should work. With this step -- You're telling the DS to replicate the change that you will make in step 4 to all other DC's in your domain.

Which step gives you this error? Try using the default Administrator account if not already doing so.
0
boxexpertAuthor Commented:
the last step, when i try to set the value to "true", then the message pops up

roomstoreCommented:
So you created the DWORD reg key Schema Update Allowed and set the hex value to 1. Now in step 5, when you go to change the value to 0 (zero) it gives the access error?

Right click the Parameters key, and check the Permissions for the account you are using.

ok,it worked. now is the next step

Cool. You'll need to find a user who's password is currently due to expire, someone who is getting the message when logging on to a pc. When you find that person, have them log onto OWA to see if the password expiration appears there as well.

If not, proceed to step 6. It says you may need to reboot the DC that these actions where performed from.
