Change password on start

By donc ·
On a single system on a 500 user network, every time NT4 is started the message "your password expires today, would you like to change it?" appears. A password change is accepted but the next time NT is started the message appears again, the user may also cancel the message with no ill effects. This is true for any authorized domain user that logs on to this one system. When logged in with admin priviledges to the server user manager program, any account that is opened for inspection has the "user must change password at next logon" block checked. The user manager program, when opened simultaneously on another system shows the same accounts as normal.

Check the date on that workstation. There may be a program running under All Users\Startup or in the registry that is setting the date incorrectly, causing the server to think the password has expired.

It may not be that exact thing, but I definitely think you're looking at a time syncronization problem and would start troubleshooting along those lines.

Hi,

Also check that the registry size is not over the quota.
