Windows XP and network password change

By CraSher!! ·
Hi;
Something quite strange it's happening in my network. We bought a month ago new machines with XP Pro installed. In all those machines, when their network passwords expire, it doesn't ask you to change it, it doesn't even warn you a few days before. Then users can log in with their old passwords but when they try to access outlook, it ask for the new password. I've check in group policy and make sure that the key "Interactive logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration" is set to 14 days. Help please.

Win XP should accept Win2K group policies. It sounds like you checked the correct policy options. The only thing I would have you check is to make sure you implemented them in the Domain Security Policy (vs. Domain Controller Security Policy or Local Security Policy).

Thank you for the help but all that has already been checked and still nothing.

Are they logging into their local machines rather than into the domain upon login?

It sounds like they have local accounts on their PCs, and they match up (as far as usernames go) with the accounts on the domain. This would explain why they change their local passwords and still can operate on their PCs, but have issues when they access their email when the network password has not yet been changed.

Verify that they all have computer accounts on the domain, and that they are logging into that domain. Otherwise, domain policies will have no effect on their login.

Hopefully this will help you!

Thank you for the help, but all those machines already have computers accounts on the domain and they are logging into the domain. Thank you anyway.
