Set LAPS Password Expiration

The Set LAPS Password Expiration tool lets you give a user a specific amount of time to set a new LAPS password. This tool doesn't allow the user to see the current password or its expiration date. 

Beginning with Recast Software Version 5.3.2312.503, this tool works with both Windows LAPS and legacy Microsoft LAPS for both encrypted and non-encrypted/plain-text passwords.

To run the tool:

1. In your Configuration Manager console, right-click on a device.

2. Click Right Click Tools > Security Tools > Set LAPS Password Expiration. When using Windows LAPS, the local Admin Account Name will be displayed.

3. In the Expire LAPS Password window, set the expiry by enabling Expire Now or scheduling a date and time using the date picker.

4. Enable Group Policy Update to force the computer to check for a group policy update, if needed.

5. Click Set Expiration.

NOTE: A group policy for LAPS password expiry will take precedence over a date and time set manually with this tool. When the password expiry date/time associated with a group policy is prior to the manually scheduled time, the password will expire according to the group policy.
