# Windows – RDP Connection to a Windows Server: “This user account’s password has expired.” but no prompt to change it

windowswindows-server-2012-r2

I got the following message trying to RDP to a Windows Server 2012 R2. However I can't get a prompt or anything to change the password. Is this due to NLA (network-level authentication) or could it be something else?

temporarily to my default.rdp file c:\users\[username]\documents. This changed the situation so that the authentication happened in server side, and the the server was able to show the dialog for giving the new password.
