Hi guys,

We have a problem with our AD 2003 domain.

Our AD passwords are due to expire in 7 days, but we are not getting a warning message for the account when we logon to our Windows 7 machines.

Any help greatly appreciated on what I can look at to see what is going on, and what should be set in Active Directory from a group policy point of view.

Thanks guys.

Log into the Domain Controller and look under Administrative Tools, Local Security Policies.
Expand Local Policies, and Security Options...make sure your Prompt user to change password option is configured along with other required password selections.

I'd start by checking the group policy is applying to the users/computers you intend.
Use the Group Policy Results wizard from GP management on the server or use gpresult/exe on the clients.
If the user doesnt have that particular GPO applied you've found your problem.
