Disable Password Expiration with PowerShell – How to do

by | Feb 12, 2021

Wondering how to disable password expiration with PowerShell? We can help you.

Often Windows users find it annoying to change passwords frequently.

One of the methods to prevent this is using PowerShell for disabling the expiration of passwords on Windows servers.

At Bobcares, we often get requests from our customers regarding this as a part of our Server Management Services.

Today, let’s see how our Support Engineers disable the password expiration for our customers.


Steps to Disable Password Expiration with PowerShell

PowerShell is a task-based command-line shell and scripting language built on .NET.

In addition, it helps to rapidly automate tasks that manage operating systems and processes.

Next, we can check the steps that our Support Techs follow to disable password expiration with PowerShell.

1. Firstly, we will go to Administrative Tools

2. Then click on Active Directory Module for Windows PowerShell.

3. After that we can import the Active Directory module in Powershell.

And running the PowerShell script will prevent the domain password from expiring again.

4.For instance if we have a domain account we can replace PCunlocker with the domain account.

PCUnlocker is a bootable utility that allows us to bypass or reset forgotten passwords.

Generally, we use this to reset administrator or other user passwords.

5. Finally, we will use the following command for disabling password expiration:

Set-LocalUser -Name "pcunlocker" -PasswordNeverExpires 1

Therefore, this command prevents passwords from expiring.
