Disable password expiration in Windows 2012Posted: January 13, 2014
I have Windows 2012 running in a lab environment and have recently been greeted with password expiring messages. There’s a pretty straight forward and quick fix to silence those pesky messages.
This is not a recommended change for a production server, but helpful to know in a testing or lab environment.
- Start typing local security policy in the Search dialog box and select the result.
- Navigate to Account Policies – Password Policy
- Change Maximum password age to zero (0) to disable
A setting of zero (0) specifies that passwords will never expire. You can set any value from 0 to 998.
