GP-AD user password expiry

L0 Member

When setting up a Global policy object for a Paloalto globalprotect user/group , the maxpwdage attribute does not match the, the password expiry date sent for Paloalto user, This can be confusing to know when the password actually going to expire for the GP user.
Panos 7.0.6
Gp 3.0.3
AD server 2012r2

Max password age was set on 14.05.17



Tailing the authd logs whilst connecting with a GP user
>>tail follow yes mp-logs authd
It shows that there are only 64 days left before the password expires, however the default domain policy is set to 75 days




This difference is due to the attirbutes maxpwdage an pwdlastset were set on differnet date.
run the below command on windows shell

get-aduser -filter * -properties passwordlastset, passwordneverexpires |ft Name, passwordlastset, Passwordneverexpires

The output below suggests that passwordlast set for the user on 04.05.17




There is a difference of 11 days between attributes  maxpwdage and pwdlastset
maxpwdage-passwordlast set= password expiry
75 -11 =64 days
