Summary:

This article explains the configuration of ExtremeZ-IP to support password expiration warnings for end users.

Description:

ExtremeZ-IP versions 3.0.2 and later support the sending of password expiration notifications to Macintosh clients. If enabled, password warnings will be sent to users after logging on and selecting a volume to mount.

After the password warning threshold is met or exceeded, password expirations will be displayed each time that specific user logs on and selects a volume. Password expiration policy may be set in local and domain environments.


In ExtremeZ-IP version 4 or later:

This feature can be enabled through the “Security Settings” tab of the “Settings” dialog in the ExtremeZ-IP Administrator.

Select the “Notify Mac Clients of Password Expiration” checkbox and specify the number of days before password expiration that you would like to start warning the user.


In ExtremeZ-IP version 3:

Two separate registry keys must be configured to enable password expiration warnings. These keys are as follows:

SendPasswordExpirationWarnings – This registry key enables and disables the sending of password expiration messages to the Macintosh clients. By default, this setting is disabled. It may be enabled by setting a DWORD value of 1. A DWORD value of 0 (zero) will disable this functionality.

PasswordExpirationWarningThreshold – This registry key controls the number of days prior to password expiration that warnings will be sent to users logging on to the ExtremeZ-IP server.

These keys must be created from the following registry location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\ExtremeZ-IP\Parameters\
