Hello,

We are having some issues with our 2008 R2 Terminal Servers where users are not being reminded to change their expiring passwords AND they are getting an "access denied" message when you try to change a password through Windows Security.

This works on all of our 2003 Terminal servers and they are using the same GPO.

Does 2008 R2 not allow Remote Desktop users to change their passwords and this is why there is no reminder to change them?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

This article explains how to extend the notification from the default of 5 days.  Adjust the setting to see if the notification starts to show up.

Thanks for your reply, I've changed the domain policy to enable the reminder to 14 days. I'll let you know if it starts showing up.

The problem I'm running into is that the users are receiving the notification in the "Notification Flag" section for about 5 seconds.  The user may only see that balloon pop up again for reminder if the log off and back on.  How do I keep that notification up until the user is required to acknowledge the password needs to be changed?
