Implications of changing "Maximum machine account password age" policy
I have written a PowerShell script that will disable and delete old computers from Active Directory. The script uses the time period since the machine password was last changed. To get a more accurate result i am considering changing the Maximum machine account password age policy.
I have one question. If I change the policy from the default of 30 day to say 5. If a computer is turned off for 6 weeks and then is turned on will that machine loose the trust with the domain please?
All clients on the domain are running Windows 7 with Server 2008 R2.
