Going to be deploying a password policy and the question of what happens if a user changes there password before the change notification time notifies you? say you have the policy 6month and start notifying 14 days prior. User does it by themselves 30 prior to force. Will they be prompted to change the password again?

If you have a force password change every 6 months and the user changes their password 30 days before the 6 month window their new expiration date will be 6 months from the date they changed it. Over time everyone will have a little different forced password change date depending on when they changed it. You can think of it like a timer versus an actual date it expires and when they change their password the timer resets for another 6 months.

fixitben is correct, when a user changes their password, it changes the pwdLastSet attribute. This is what a password policy checks, x amount of days since pwdLastSet
