Shared secret update period (hours)

This policy setting lets you define how often the shared secret used for authentication during the offline password reset should be updated. Set the update period in hours. Lower values provide better security, but setting very low values for the update period may cause replication issues.

It is recommended to make this value greater than the intersite replication period in the Active Directory domain.

Note: If the Display the Offline Password Reset button (command link) policy is disabled, then this policy has no effect

Supported on: At least Windows 2000
