    We recently changed the account expiration date from 120 to 90 days. Since
    then, user who's accounts have expired, sometimes get the message that their
    account has expired when they boot their computer and they need to reset
    their password but often they do not. To make matters worse, there are quite
    a few people who are having issues with accounts continuously being locked
    out after this change. One of them is on our IT staff. We have a distributed
    environment with a mix of DC's that are 2k and 2k3 with some R2 mixed in
    there. Any ideas what the problem could be? I'm checking the event logs at
    these sites to see if they shed any light on the problem. I'll also run a
    dcdiag to make sure everything is healthy and I will let you know if there is
    anything unusual.

    If there are any service accounts setup in the enviornment which will expire
    due to this, can get impacted. Normally, you won't notice the issue until the
    service is restarted or the server itself reboots.
