FTP and username password expiration RRS feed

  • Question

  • In SB Server you can tell when a user's password will expire.  You go to prperties for that user and the option is there.

    In WHS I can tell the password that it will expire but have not found a way to make that happen.  Under properties there is no option for that.

  • Hi,

    There is no method, through WHS, of setting the passwords to expire. The rational, I would expect, is that this is a 'home' network and consequently not as vulnerable to third parties.

    Although WHS is based on Server 2003, (and it's security infrastructure), it is recommended that the only changes should be done through the Console, otherwise it can lead to major problems for WHS. This has resulted in re-installs being required in some cases.
