Our users are recently loosing connections to resources.
We have diagnosed this to an expired password.
Under windows 7 the users are A: either not being prompted at all, or B: they are clicking cancel and the expiration comes and goes, then they loose access.
I had 3 on Friday, and 4 so far today (Tuesday)
WE have adjusted the GPO
Computer configuration \ policies \ windows settings \ security settings \ local policies \ security options \ Interactive Logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration to 8 days (Default is 14)
The only way we can fix this is to have the user log out, and log back in, it then prompts them for the change. OR have the press "crtl alt delete" \ Change password....
Is there any way to:
1. make this come up every single day, counting down to expiration?
2. prompt the user when it actually is expired?
There is another gpo: Interactive Logon: "require domain controller authentication to unlock workstation" but would that apply to say a print server or file server type resources?
user cant print
user cant access mapped network drives
log out, log in, reset password
Domain functional level is currently 2003
