The maximum password age is a server setting, not a specific user
It tells the server how to calculate the Password must change field
when, and _only_ when the user password is changed.
When the user changes it's password, the Password must change field is
calculated as current time + maximum password age seconds.
Changing the maximum password age setting will not change any existing
user Password must change field. You either need to force a user to
change his password or edit the password must change field by yourself.
This is hot NT has been designed, and is also the only sane way it can
