How do you create a password in Windows Sever 2008 that forces the user to change said password on login? I'm creating the accounts for our team and would like people to change from the random password I generate for them.

Thanks

Where is that screen? –  Tyler DeWitt Oct 27 '11 at 17:47

@TylerDeWitt Which one? For local users, run lusrmgr.msc. For domain users, run dsa.msc. Both screens are from the "New User" dialogs within those tools. –  Shane Madden Oct 27 '11 at 17:50
    
@TylerDeWitt the first screen is in Control Panel > User Accounts (or alternatively in Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Local Users and Groups). The second screen (domain user) is located under the Users Properties in Active Directory Users and Computers –  DKNUCKLES Oct 27 '11 at 17:52
    
If the user accounts already exists you can access this option under the Account options section on the Account tab of the user properties. –  joeqwerty Oct 27 '11 at 18:07
