Disabling password expiration


Hi everyone,

I have different WorkSpaces set up on different locations but the ones I have in a particular one seem to have a password expiration set up for users so I need to reset it up for them every month.

Does anyone know how can it be disabled? Is this tied to the directory?

Thanks, Laura

The password comes from Active Directory. On the user object in Active Directory Users and Computers, click the checkbox to not let the password expire.

From the notes, I understand that you want to disable the password expiration. Here are steps to follow to achieve that:

[1] Launch an EC2 Windows Instance.

[2] Domain join it to your Directory (This will enable you to login in as an Administrator)

[3] Connect to your instance.

[4] You can now change/reset your password policies.

I have included a link [1] to guide on Supported Policy Settings available to achieve the above mentioned issue.

  • you can load the AD tools into a WorkSpace used by an admin - no need to start an EC2 instance.
