Re: [K12OSN] Active Directory expiring passwords

Not sure if Samba in of itself is sufficient to pull this off.  However,  there are other commercial products such as Centeris' Likewise and Centrify's DirectControl that allow you manage  Linux  computers the same you manage Windows computers - all from a Windows MMC.
Linux computers  and users inherit the  same password policies as Windows users.  This means that Linux users will be notified  when their password requires changing and will be given a chance to change at a login.  Password complexity, length, age and history are  enforced as dictated by the AD domain.

Can Linux users be given a warning when their Active Directory password
is about to expire?  (Like they get when they log in using Windows)
