Password expiration warning

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.security (More info?)

Hi

I set the password policy in GPO as follows
Max 30 days
Min 28 days

Now users get this password expiration warning
"your password will be expired in 14 days.........."
Is there any way that I can customize it such as
after 27 days later, users will get "your password will be expired in 3
days......"

I thought that once I change the Min password days, it will be changed
automatically. But guess not.

Thanks

    Hi,

    Change this policy

    Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local
    Policies -> Security Options ->

    Interactive logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration

    Here set the number of days (default is 14) before users start getting
    warnings that their password will expire...

    I hope this helps.
