Server 2016 password change not updating
One easy way to see whom this entails would be to open up the Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) and do a search on all users for that domain.Every user that shows up on that search falls into this scope.
However I'm on Windows Server 2012 R2 and whenever I follow those instructions my "Password" field is greyed out and I cannot figure out for the life of me why.Any ideas as to why the 120 day password expiration is not working?Password Policy: Enforce password history 6 passwords remembered Maximum password age 120 days Minimum password age 1 days Minimum password length 7 characters Password must meet complexity requirements Disabled Store passwords using reversible encryption Disabled By creating GPO on OU, This will not work for what you're trying to do.Once there, you'll find three policy folders: Password Policy, Account Lockout Policy and Kerberos Policy.For each of these folders and the settings contained within them, there's a default in Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 freshly installed domains. To ensure you understand what I mean by domain users, let's scope out where these users reside.The result will be that this new GPO will control the Account Policy settings for all domain users.
When you install a new Active Directory domain within Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2, or upgrade a Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003 domain to have Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 DCs, you can configure the domain to be at the Windows Server 2008 Domain Functional Level.
We only have one GPO that is setting the password policies.
When I do a net user username on a user that had to change their password today it shows they shouldn't have to change it again until 4/8/15 and said 3/something last month when they had to change their password.
When you edit a standard Group Policy Object (GPO) from the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC), you'll find the same options for the Account Policy.
To find the password policy settings, which are under the Account Policy, open up the following path of policy folders: Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Account Policies.
We have a single DC and are trying to enforce Password Policies to all of our computers.
