Chapter 7. Network Configuration > Force users to change passwords

7.14. Force users to change passwords

Each user account includes several options that define security parameters for the account. One of these determines whether Windows 2000 ages the users' passwords, eventually expiring the password and requiring the user to specify a new one. Using password expiration guards against a user keeping the same password for a long period of time, making it more susceptible to being stolen or discovered and thereby compromising the user's account.

Configuring accounts for password expiration requires two steps. You first configure the user accounts for password expiration and then define the expiration period through the password policy.
