Setting reminder on password expiration

By marvinl ·
In and NT 4 Domain how can you set the # of days for a reminder to pop up before the users password expires? I think by default it is 14 days. How can I change this #? I would like to change it to 7 days.

Thanks

Setting reminder on password expiration

For NT4 you can change this parameter but you have to go into the registry.

Make sure you back up the registry before making any changes.

Goto the HKEY_LOCAL_MACINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Add or Change the following entry
PasswordExpiryWarning: REG_DWOR <number of days>

Hope this helps
