1. Open the GPO editor and go to

2. Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options\

3. Enable the Domain Member: Disable machine account password changes option


1. Edit the Domain Member: Maximum machine account password age option

2. Increase the value from the default of 30 days to a new larger value (up to a maximum of 999 days)
