To manage the password setup in SBS 2008 and SBS 2011 Active Directory we use the SBS Console:
- Open the SBS Console.
- Click on the Users and Groups tab.
- If not already selected, click on the Users tab.
- Under Tasks click on Change password policies.
- NOTE: All users will be required to change their passwords on their next log on if any changes are made to these settings!
This wizard is normally used during the set up process only.
If this wizard is used somewhere in the middle of an SBS Migration or SBS Swing Migration the consequences may be dire. It is best left as the final step _after_ at least one week of the post-migrated server being in production.
