SharePoint force password change

  Asked By: Alex    Date: Mar 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2711

Is there anyway to get SharePoint to force the user to change their password. Basically we have several requirements that users can't recycle passwords, passwords must be a certain length, etc. Is there anyway that we can enforce this via SharePoint. I think the big problem is our users aren't logging into workstations that authenticate against the AD domain. They are only hitting the domain via SharePoint.

Anyone have any ideas? Could I develop my own custom isapi filter to live above the SharePoint one and check Active Directory before it hits the stsfltr? If anyone has any ideas, I'd be greatly appreciative.

In my spare time (grin) I am working on a Change Password Web Part. Watch

Do you know of any way to force  users to have to change  their password? i.e. the user  has had the same password  for a couple of months - the system notifies them that they have to change it. If you have any idea to throw out there, then that would be great. I've pretty much hit a brickwall with it. I know that Active Directory has some domain  policies that you can set, but I don't think they are actually used or enforced by SharePoint.

Yes I know how but it would be too in depth to discuss here. Once I have a
working viable solution I will post a link here.

I still think that a tool part version would be best.
