    You can use commandline script on server to trigger change to user account password and force it to EXPIRE:
    WMIC.EXE /Node:remotecomputer Path Win32_UserAccount Where Name="user" Set PasswordExpires="TRUE"

    Open in new window

    If you are a bit into scripting, you can find A LOT of really usefull commandline short scripts for active directory here:
