NetIQ Advanced Authentication 4.8


We need to know where and how to set the number of days before NetIQ will generate a random password.


To understand how often password generation occurs, let’s consider an example:

These are default domain policy settings: Maximum password age = 42 days, Interactive logon: Prompt user to change password before expiration = 14 days.

So user’s password will be changed after 42-14 = 28 days (for GINA) after last changing (it’s a time when notification message about expiring password begins to appear in case when you don’t using the random passwords), and after 42 days (for CP).
