Hi is there,

Can SQL 2005 prompt you to change the SQL Authentication password after a certain period, i.e. 90 days.

Thanks

Yes.. Provided you have a domain group policy enforcing password expiry for every 90 days.

And you have to enable Password Expiration through Enforce password policy and Enforce Password Expiration for the associated users to get it implemented.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Thanks for the info.
The domain user account (NT Authentaication) has a a 90 day password change policy.
So when creating a new user login in sql server and using sql authentication, does 'Enforce Password Expiration' use the domain account to force them to re-set the sql authentication password.
Is this correct?

Thanks again,

Would this just report a login error saying the account/password has expired, would it prompt the user to change the password, or would this have to be done through the management studio.

By default, SQL Server wont intimate you about expiration of passwords of users associated.
It will throw an error message no 18487 after you try to use the login after password expires.

And hence we have to manually do the things mentioned below to handle it proactively:
