    Users are getting the expired password prompted at every login, even after changing password. In user manager when attempting to uncheck the 'change password at next logon' box...upon reopening it is checked again? All users effected are running XP, can login to a 98 box and receive no prompts? Server is NT.

    I took the NT server course awhile back and I remember there is a place in the NT Server Admin that sets twhen the PW expires, has that been checked?

    Yes. Set to expire after 90 days. However it doesn't matter if the password is changed or not..it still requests the password be changed at every login.

    Weird, if I think of anything else I'll post it, but hopefully someone who works with NT will come along and help.

    If you are getting an error message that your password is about to expire:

    Right click on the My Computer icon
    Select Manage
    Go to Local Users and Groups / Users
    Right-click on the user you want to change
    Select Properties
    On the General tab, check Password never expires
    Click OK

    If you want to do this for all users, enter:

    Start / Run / net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited
