default domain policy failed warning
Posted on 2010-08-31
our outsourced monitoring service sent us an alert stating that it has "discovered problems with the Default Domain Policy. This policy contain Password Policy, Account Lockout Policy and Kerberos Policy settings.Users will not get home folders and logon scripts will not work properly.And they may face permissions issue while accessing domain resources."
Earlier today we changed the password policy through GPO on our PDC to enforce changes every 60 days, with 7 days between changes, and 4 passwords remembered. 30 minutes later, we received this alert. I see nothing in the event viewer on that PDC. Some users have already been prompted to change their password. Some have not. No one has reported not being able to logon or access shares. I am able to get to and open the netlogon and sysvol shares from my desktop. Ran set logonserver and it showed the PDC in question. What else should I check top ensure the GPO is OK?
Any ideas to the meaning of this, and more specifically - do I need to worry about it, are greatly appreciated.
