    Accepted Solution


    Group Policy: Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options. Enable the option "Interactive Logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration" and set desired number of days.

    Is this for 2003 server domain policy?

    Check the "Default Domain Policy" in the root of your domain.
