Remote Desktop Services / NLA / Password Change
Posted on 2011-10-25
We have a Windows Server 2008 running Remote Desktop Services with several remote users. The users passwords expired or were reset and they are required to reset their password on next login.
The built-in NLA (Network Level Authentication) is being used in Remote Desktop sessions of the Windows 7 machines. This level of Authentication does not allow a password change at login.
Catch 22 - How can these remote users log in for the first time to set their password if they have to log in before they can change their password with NLA?
As a temporary fix, we have the remote users log in with a Windows XP machine to change the passwords remotely, which works, but is a waste of time.
How can we configure the RDS server so Windows 7 users canremotely reset their passwords on next login with NLA?
