We have a bit of a problem with our domain. Our domain controller is Small Business Server 2003, and a little less than three months ago, we turned on the domain password policy (Server Management -> Manage Users -> Configure Password Policies). All the passwords expired, sure enough, and the users made new passwords that met the new complexity requirements. I checked the box labeled "password must be changed regularly", and set the expiration to 90 days.
In other non-SBS domains, I have seen users receive a password warning pop-up 14 days beforehand that allows them to change their passwords ahead of time. Counting the days, our passwords should expire on May 15. I'm starting to worry that the passwords will expire without warning.
I've checked the local security policy on the domain controller, and it matches up. The "prompt user to change password before expiration" is set to 14 days. The workstations are a mix of Windows 7 and XP. So far no one has received the warning.
Thanks in advance for your help - I know there are many here who appreciate it!
