How to Disable Password Expiration on Windows Server 2008

Filed under: General,Security,Windows — Tags: , , , , , — admin @ 2:31 pm

If you’re not using Active Directory, your “Local Security Policy” dictates things like password complexity rules, account lockouts, and password expiration. To turn off password expiration:

1) Login as Administrator or a user with Administrator rights
2) Launch “Local Security Policy”: Start > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy
3) Expand “Account Policies”
4) Select Password Policy
5) Set Maximum Password age to “0”
