How To Find When A User Password Expires?

Share & Comment

As an admin, how do we find out when a user’s password expires?

It is easy to find, once you know the command ;)

The one we need to run is Net User username /domain from the command prompt. It gives you more info than what you are looking for, but it has all the info about the password – when the password was changed, when will it expire etc.

    This is the command i use, when users call and tell me they are unable to log in. Use this command to quickly verify if their password has expired.
    In case it has, you can quickly reset it using Powershell using the set-adaccountpassword cmdlet.

    1. Thanks Prakash for the tip.

  2. It doesn’t appear that /domain is required. You get all of the desired info with out it.

    1. Hi Pat,

      Tested on an XP machine and it does need the /domain.
      Did you test it on Windows 7?


  3. Works quite well thanks!

    btw, I tried without the /domain in a win 2003 R2 and it worked fine.

      Thanks Pnatel.

      The /domain is only required in Windows XP.
