Changing password using RDWeb

If on RDP server NLA is turned on and user password has expired, there's no way to update password using RDP. You may update password only on Windows computer, included into domain. Or using Remote Desktop Web Access web-interface.

You should set RD Web Access role. By default changing password using web-interface is turned off. To turn on:

  1. Win-R, inetmgr
  2. [Server Name] > Sites > Default Web Site > RDWeb > Pages > Application Settings
  3. Set PasswordChangeEnabled option to true
  4. Run command line as administrator and type: iisreset

RD Web change password

Check in browser. Specify in address line:


This site is meant to change password. User name should be specified with domain.

WTware: change password from menu

In WTware there are two ways of changing password. You may create special menu item, so that when user selects it he will see interface to change password. In WTware terminal configuration file specify:




Note! To work with RDWeb you should specify domain in WTware configuration file.

Change IP to your servers' IP. After boot you'll see menu with two items, second item starts dialog for password changing:

RD Web change password

If on IIS another language is set, not english (by default in password changing URL is set en-US), you may tell terminal to receive messages on another language:

server=password:, pt-BR

WTware: change password after error

You may tell terminal to show RDWEb password changing interface when RDP server rejects to logon user due to password expiration. In WTware terminal configuration file:


Once more: to work with RDWeb you should specify domain in WTware configuration file.

Change IP to IP of your servers. After boot there will be no extra menu items. User will work with specified in server= RDP server. And only when RDP server will reject user logon with "password expired" error or "you should change password", terminal will turn to specified in rdweb_password= option RDWeb server and will ask to change user password.

Language for RDWeb responces is set the same:

rdweb_password=, pt-BR
