I received a prompt today regarding the expiry of my password. I don't want to change the password and as there is only the two of us I don't feel the risks warrant the changes.
I found a post in one of the Lync forums that gave instructions as to how to change the settings using Powershell. I've followed the instructions, entering the administrative username and password when prompted and the commands have seemed to have been accepted (no error messages) but there wasn't any confirmation message either.
This is the commands from Powershell. Is there anyway for me to tell whether the change I have made to my settings have been succesfull or not?
PS C:\Windows\system32> $LiveCred = Get-Credential
cmdlet Get-Credential at command pipeline position 1
Supply values for the following parameters:
PS C:\Windows\system32> connect-MSOLService -Credential $cred
PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-MSOLUser | Set-MSOLUser -PasswordNeverExpires $true

If you want to verify that the settings, you can run the following command from Poweshell.
After you have connected to MSol as in your example above type the following to verify the setting are set to $true
Get-Msoluser -UserPrincipalName <You Login ID> | fl

This issue can be caused if you are running Windows PowerShell for Exchange Online instead of Microsoft Online Services Module for Windows PowerShell. Given this situation, please download and install Microsoft Online Services Module for Windows PowerShell from http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-US/office365-enterprises/hh124998.aspx. After that, try to run the cmdlet again.
If the issue persists, I suggest you create a new thread for this issue, so that we can dig deeper on this issue.
