We setup password Policies in Active Directory to Expire peoples passwords after so many days. Well it looks like the time has come for the Expiration of the Passwords and people are getting locked out...
There has been no warning of user passwords about to expire. They just come in to work and they cannot log in, the phones no longer connect, nothing. Reset the password and all is good.
Some of the users are locked out, though most are not, they just cannot log in.
On setting the password Expiration, I didn't see anything about nor warning the users of the impending expiration. Seems like it used to warn you 15 days or so before it would expire.
Clients range from: WinXP, WinVista, Win7 and Server 2008R2 Remote Desktop Services.
How can I make sure my users are warned of the Expiration?
