NT Passwords

By ndippold ·
I am managing an NT 4.0 network and would like to change the password prompt "Your Password Expires in 14 Days, do you want to change it now? Yes/No" to display at 5 days instead of 14 days.
I have searched the task bar utilities in User Manager for Domains, and reviewed various Property sheets with no luck!
I'm sure the answer to this question will prompt me to say "I knew that" but for now,I could use some help!

Thanks

In User Manager for Domains can't you click on Policy, Account and set it there?

Thanks for your reply, however, I have already been through User Manager for Domains with no success.
The Account policies allow you to set the length a users password will remain valid, but what I am looking to change is the Network notifacation that an account is going to expire in (default 14 days)to a 5 day notice.
Thanks for your response!

OK, gotcha. The registry key is HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Winlogon and the key is named PasswordExpiryWarning.

Maybe you could write a .reg file and have call it in a login script to change all machines.

Thank You for your response to my question. Unfortunatley, your advise could not help me.

Though this would prevent the "Password Expires in n days" message from appearing,it allows users to keep the same password for as long as they like.I choose to have users change their password every 30 days.

Thank You,
