Hello,
I need a command that will allow me to change the "Password Never Expires" checkbox for a local user account.  I know how to change this manually through local users/groups but I need to push this out to hundreds of PC's in several offices so doing it manually isn't really an option.  Using the "net user" command I have been able to alter just about every property in the user account except for the "Password Never Expires".  I know I can use "net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited" to set the password to never expire for ALL users, but is there a command that will let me set this property for just one local user on the PC?  All the PC's I need to change are running Windows XP SP3 and are all in the same Windows domain, so if you know of a way to accomplish this through a group policy that would work also.  Thanks,
