Hi,this something i have wanted to ask on the forum over the past days.Is there a way in windows server 2012r2 that can enable users to change their passwords themselves ”after” they have expired without contacting the administrator to reset for them. (Not the users change the password on next login setting.)
Thinking of trying to use manageengine’s ad selfservice password reset tool,but maybe anyone could enlighten me on a better way.A powershell equivalent is also welcome.

If a password is expired, the user will be asked to change the password when he or she logs on the next time. No admin is required for this.
Self-service password solutions are for those situations when the user forgot the password. You can probably build your own self-service password solution with PowerShell or any other programming language. However, I don’t recommend it. It is cheaper and more reliable if you buy applications instead of building them yourself. You only have to build applications in-house if the standard solutions don’t work well for your environment.
