I know there have been several topics regarding remote users on domain computers/laptops and how they can change their login passwords without coming into the main office.
It does seem to be a particularly awkward issue.
We have an SBS 2011 server and users on Windows 7 laptops & PCs.
Users on the network are easy to manage regarding passwords. For now I have just asked them all to Ctrl+Alt+Delete and change password, but I would like to enforce a 90 day password life for ALL users.
It is the remote users that are the problem and the difficulty in updating the password cache on the local machine (they all login to their computers using Domain credentials and are all local administrators of their computers) Many of the topics I have read through concern loging in across vpn. We do not use vpn.
Our remote users come into the office 2 - 3 times a year.
Remote users use Outlook client (over HTTP) or OWA.
They also use SharePoint (with SharePoint using the Domain credentials they use to logon to their computers, using IE's security setting: Automatic login with current user name and password).
As one of a list of security measures I would like to, at least, get the users to change their email password regularly - which I know they can do from within OWA. My questions are:
what knock on effects that OWA password change will bring?
I know they will have one password for their computer login and a different one for OWA login due to the local cache.
How will this OWA password change affect their SharePoint login?
Will it still use their domain user computer login?
When the users eventually come into the office what procedure should they go through to change their login password?
Is it a simple Ctrl+Alt+Delete and change password?
Or, will the password change they have put in place previously using OWA affect how they login the first time they join the main office LAN network?
Also, for those users who are using the Outlook client over HTTP,
would using OWA and changing their password affect the password they have to use when the Outlook client login box appears?
Thanks for your time
