Need to change the NDS password expiration date and time on multiple users.
"Force periodic password changes" is grayed out and can not be modified.


In ConsoleOne select the users that need to have their password expiration date changed. Right click and select properties of multiple objects. Go the password restriction section in the restriction tab. Place a check mark in both "Allow user to changed password" and Require a password". Now "Force periodic password changes" can be checked and modified.

Additional Information

This only applies to the NDS password. It does not apply to NMAS and using password policies.
