AD User Accounts, Passwords, OA/OWA and SharePoint
Posted on 2011-03-15
We're beginning to plan enforced, periodic password changes via Group Policies on a 2003 Domain, for example, change ever 90 days, enforce strong passwords, etc. I noticed the Policy is located in the Computer group -- not the User group.
We have local users in the office as well as a number of remote users who use Outlook Anywhere (with Outlook), Outlook Web Access (via Browser) and SharePoint while some have Computers listed in AD and others have their own laptop that are not apart of the domain. They do not VPN into our network.
When it gets close to 90 days, I know local users will be prompted via Windows login to change their passwords and even get advanced warnings. Will the same happen for OA/OWA and SharePoint users using Outlook and/or Internet Explorer -- on Workgroup and Domain Computers? SharePoint is configured to use their AD accounts for authentication.
