Hello
I will be appllying the settings "user must change password at next login" for 150 users on Monday morning.
We have many remote users that use NCP to vpn into the network to access their network shares.  
My question is will the users that use NCP to vpn from home be prompted to change there password ? Or will we have to manually set a password for these users to use VPN ?
Also when the users restart their laptop whilst working remotely will they use their new password or the old password that is cached locally?

We use cisco vpn here and if the user has the must change password at next login check they will not be able to log into the VPN. You may need to set a new password for them in order for them to connect.

If the user is connected to the VPN and then changes their password the local password should sync up and the next time they log in they should be able to use their new password.

They will only get the password reset prompt if they are actually connected to the domain so that the server can send them the information otherwise, the laptop is pretty much acting stand alone. When they try and access network resources then that is where the problem will arise as it will want the password changing before it continues.

I would manually reset the password for the remote workers to save yourself a headache.

Thanks for this information.
Once the user has logged on via VPN with the password provided they can simply ctrl alt del and change their password which will also synch with the locally cached user password ? is this correct ?
Correct once the user is connected to the VPN it is as if they were sitting in the office. The password change will take affect both on the domain as well as the cached local credentials.
Hi,
In a simple way, you can modify users properties.
Once it has been done, they will be forced to change their password at next logon.
