RDS Users Dont Receive Pwd Notice



  • Hoping someone can help?

    Have a problem with password expiration and Remote Desktop Services/Terminal Server users and their passwords.

    RDS/TS users don't receive password expiring notifications when they log in. This is a hassle as obviously, they won't change their password before it expires and also, it's impossible for them to change is once it expires unless they have access to a domain joined PC, which several of them don't as they are 3rd party contractors.

    There are a powershell scripts and free tools around to service this need, but powershell scripts can become railroaded and free tools don't always offer enough functions.

    Wondering what others have done to solve this problem?

    Thanks.

    If you have to expire passwords, I have good success with Netwrix's password expiration notifier. They have a free and paid version. Obviously, the paid version offers more features, but I used the free one for a few years until I ditched password expiration policies.

    The paid version is actually part of another product:

    Thanks @wrx7m for the reply.

    Due to a number of reasons i've decided to a PS1 script to assign new passwords.

    You should post your script on ML

    It's not mine, it's one I found in the Technet Gallery. I tested it and it works pretty well. You can assign a specific password to a specific user.
