Cached domain account password are useful indefinitely meaning they do expire on the AD, but user will not be prompted to change his/her passoword in they are not connected to the AD, nor will cached password expire. When the user do connect to the AD, they will be prompted to change the password.

The computers connected to the machine also have password which also expire, I believe the time limit is 30.  When you connect a machine after such time, you would require to resync the machine password, disjoin/join of machine will achieve the same.

I don't think there is anything explicitly available in GP to control "cached credential" password expiry. The only thing that you can change is the number of cached credential allowed on a machine.

Hope that helps.
