AD Passowrd Policy


Does anyone know how the password policy reacts to a change say from 30 day to 90 day?  because I am still seeing people password need to be change before the 90 days?

I change this last week from 30 to 90.  does the change take place after they change there password again??

Password policies only take affect after the password has been expired or changed by the user or an administrator.

When you modify a password policy the user will continue to have the same settings until the password has been reset. This also goes for Password Complexity as well.
