Consider the following scenario:
- You are in an Active Directory domain network environment.
- You implement the Maximum password age Group Policy setting to specify how frequently Windows changes the account password of a local computer.
- The maximum password age is reached on a client computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
In this scenario, the client computer does not change the account password.
Note: This issue occurs if you change the Local Security Authority (LSA) password but do not change the password in the domain, and then you restart the client computer.
