I have a server 2008 domain with two domain controllers. My users are running xp x32, vista x32, and windows 7 x64. Recently the users have been getting locked out as they are no longer getting reminders to change their passwords. The GP is set for 14 day notice.

1)   Load Group Policy Editor ( Start --> Run --> gpedit.msc )

2)   Expand sections as follows -

Computer Configuration --> Windows Settings --> Security Settings --> Account Policies --> Password Policy

Set 'Maximum password age' to 0 to totally disable expiry.

Ok i am in local group policy editor on the domain controller, and have gone to the location you instructed. Here is the settings i have:

Enforce password history - 10 passwords remembered
Maximum password age -  60 days
Minimum password age - 1 day

Then in local policies>security options:
Interactive logon: prompt user to change password before expiration - 14 days

But once again the users are not getting the 14 day prompt. Can you make any other suggestions or explain to me how setting Set 'Maximum password age' to 0 to totally disable expiry, is supposed to fix this?

Thank you!

Just to note, when i load rsop.msc and go to the same location >computer configuration>windows settings>Local Policies>Security Options> prompt user to change password before expiration - Not defined

Can someone explain this?

I have double checked the users in AD to ensure they are NOT set to "password never expires"

Install GPMC tool and from here browse default domain policy and re-check your password policy as well security options:Interactive logon: prompt user to change password before expiration - 14 days

Then cross check the default computer container should not have Block policy inheritance.

From client machine - Run Gpupdate /force ..Gpupdate /sync

Then run gpresult /v and post the result here .
