    Hi All,

    We have a user whose password was supposed to expire after 90 days, but we
    needed to postpone that for a few more weeks. We selected the option
    "Password Never Expires" on the Account tab for the user's Active Directory
    account. The problem is that after doing that, the person was still getting
    the pop-up box upon login, or upon unlocking his workstation, telling him
    that his password is about to expire. AND he even got the popup after the
    password was supposed to originally expire, saying something like "your
    password expires in 0 days". He has been able to login all of those times by
    clicking on NO (ie. don't change my password now). I can't find anything on
    the Internet explaining how to make this popup go away. Any help would be
    appreciated.

    Thanks!

  2. Hello Jim,

    I think the problem is that the flag for changing the password is set. And
    now changing to password never expires will be ignored. WHy not just changing
    the password and all are done.

    Best regards

    Hi Meinolf,

    For certain 'executive' reasons, we cannot change the password right now.
    Rebooting the executives desktop fixed the issue, but he's looking for a
    reason.

    Thanks,

    Bill.
