Uncheck the Password Never Expires Checkbox for an AD OU

By | March 12, 2008

The lazy admin knew I had a script that would do something to a users acount. Somthing with the passsword.
Well, I did. But not what he was asking for. So, I took the previous password script and changed it.
Thanks to Guy Tomas for starting the ball rolling.
I changed the script to uncheck the "password never expires" checkbox.

When do user passwords expire?

By | May 3, 2007

I had a user today ask, "Are we still doing the password security program?  It’s been over 90 days since we first implemented it and I haven’t been prompted to change my password.  Thanks!"
The next thing I said was, F$@%! Then I use most of a script I found at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms974598.aspx
This helped me to determin when user passwords expire in an OU.

BTW the user above had changed their password 43 days ago, they had just forgotten!
