symptom
Trigger associated with the UserSetInfo Operation to update the Password Never Expires field does not run.

cause
Triggers associated with the UserSetInfo Operation must be configured as a Pre-Task trigger. 

fix

The Password Never Expires field in Active Directory or an NT SAM database is called $MCSPasswordDontExpire.  Scripts which modify the Password Never Expires flag should be configured as a Pre-Task trigger.

A sample script called PasswordNeverExpires.vbs is available in the Knowledge Depot (requires username and password) in the Triggers and Policy Script section.  The script when configured as a Pre-Task trigger, unchecks the Password Never Expires flag of a user account when associated with the UserSetInfo Operation:

 



note
Setting the value of the $MCSPasswordDontExpire field to False unchecks the Password Never Expires flag, if checked.  In order to check the Password Never Expires flag change the value in the script to True.
