We are using terminal servers with windows 2008 r2 with res workspace.

At the login screen i would like that the user will be notified that his password expires in "x" days.

How can i get the password notification to work on windows 2008?

Has somebody a script that i can run on the login screen ?

Unless specified and enforced by a policy, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 users will not received a password expiry notice until 5 days before password expiration. Using gpedit, the group policy to alter this default can be found at: Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Local Policies\Security Options under Interactive Logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration.

Using regedit, the registry entry which controls this can be found at: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon under PasswordExpiryWarning.

Set this value to maxpasswordage so users will receive everytime they login.
