Disable password expiration in Windows Server 2008 R2 #

This oft-cited method only works if Active Directory has not been installed (otherwise, the option will be grayed out and unavailable):
Start > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Account Policies > Password Policy > set "Maximum password age" to "0"
This method works on a domain controller:
Start > Administrative Tools > Group Policy Management > Forest > Domains > your domain name > right click "Default Domain Policy" under your domain name > Edit > Computer Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Account Policies > Password Policy > set "Maximum password age" to "0" > OK
