I have figured the password expiry


newUser.CommitChanges();
                newUser.Properties["userAccountControl"].Value = 0x10000;


But not the "User must change password at logon"

Try this. This is an example of VB script.


objUser.Put "pwdLastSet", 0
objUser.SetInfo

Open in new window

Cont from my previous post:

Default value of pwdLastSet is -1. By assigning value 0, you'll get your desire result.
