I have an outsourced helpdesk service.  When they reset passwords, they leave this box checked.  The problem is then my remote used can not access web apps that use AD, because that value needs to change.  I have reminded them of this a lot, but they have a lot of techs and attention to detail is an issue.

How do I change it so when a tech changes the password this attribute is unchecked by default?

What server version are you running?

Have you tried editing the Default User policy? I would try changing the flag on the default user in gpedit and follow up with a possible reboot and see if this helps.

Sorry I don't have access to a AD server anymore, so it's impossible for me to figure it out by searching through the settings like i usually do
