I have notfiied users that more secure domain passwords will be required on Feb 20. I have a 2003 domain functional level domain. I am trying to change my password requiremenst to meet complex requirments, and to change it every 4 months.
If I want to have requirement of password to be changed in 8 days(Feb 20), do I have to change the maxiumum password age to 8 in my new dafualt domain policy so the users will be notified now and apply this policy to domain now?
Then when users have changed their passwords , do i then change the maximum password age to 120 days so they will get prompted again in 4 months time?
