"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Tom CieslikIT EngineerCommented:
I'm not sure what you want to do, but I assume you want to check account/computer with oldest password and compare it to policy so you'll know oldest password in your network.

To do this you must use Visual Basic and run script.
There is a predefined script for this and you can just copy it and run on your network

Also you can try to find a user/account with expiring password but you must know user name

thanks this means the machine account password age which is meant to be 30 days will expire and not the user name??

machine account here refers to workstations and computer s, because we have a storage filer whose account got expired

does this mean the new password which we have set now will expire in 30 days for this account ?
