Password Policy for Domain RRS feed

  • 問題

  • I have few question about the password policy for domain:

    1. After changed the password policy, will the system require the users to change the password immediately? (Do I have to check the "User must change password at next logon" under "Active Directory Users and Computers" so that the system will require users to change the password immediately?)

    2. How about the option "Password never expires" checked first, then change the password policy of domain. Is that user has to change his or her password  as well?

    3. If user bring his notebook and go to other country for business trip, then, new password policy apply, does he or she has to change the password? Does he or she still can access Office Outlook if he or she don't change his or her password (the Office outlook account and domain account are the same).

    4. If the password reaches its maximum age but the user is at other country for business trip. Can he or she still use the old password for login to the domain and Office Outlook?

    Thanks a lot!

    Best regard,

  • Hi Shiloh,

    1. After you change the password policy, system will automatically require users to change their passwords if their passwords are expired under the new policy.

    2. The password policy will not affect a user whose password never expires.

    3. If his password expires under the new policy, he will be required to change the password.

    4. The user must change his password before he can access domain resource.

    Hope this helps.
