    McAfee login password expiration

    ralzaga

      Hi,

          I have a problem with McAfee firewall version 7.0.1.02 everytime I login to the firewall it prompts me to change my password because it is already expired. I haven't observed how many days or weeks my password expires but I want to solve the expiration issue because I am tired of changing passwords. Also does it detect if the password is already used? because sometimes it doesn't allow me to change it to a previous password I set. Thank you.

          Passwords are designed to expire - so it is worth checking what the expiry value is as it may be that someone has configured a short expiry time and the system is behaving as it should.

           

          This value is found in the Policy -> Rule Elements -> Authenticators screen (select the Password element).

           

          I'm not aware of a problem where passwords expire randomly. But as you are running 7.0.1.02 I would recommend installing the current patch - 7.0.1.03

           

          If having done this, the symptoms persist then I'd recommend you raise a service request with McAfee support.
