I have a 2008 server that is not part of a domain (is a workgroup member). I want to set one of the local accounts to never expire but I can find where to do that. I have gone into the local policys on the server and i can set it to expire every 999 days but I cant seem to find where to set it to never expire. Where is that setting on 2008?
