SYMPTOMS

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.

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 file information notes
Important Windows Vista hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, only "Windows Vista" is listed on the Hotfix Request page. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows Vista" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.
  • The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table.

    VersionProductSR_LevelService branch
    6.0.600 1 . 22xxxWindows Vista and Windows Server 2008SP1LDR
    6.0.600 2 . 22xxxWindows Vista and Windows Server 2008SP2LDR
