The MUST_CHANGE option is not supported by this version of Microsoft Windows.

Error Message:
Msg 15195, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
The MUST_CHANGE option is not supported by this version of Microsoft Windows.

Severity level:
16.

Description:
This error message appears when you try to create a login with SQL Server authentication that must change its password upon first connect, but the operating system running SQL Server does not support this setting.

Consequences:
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.

Resolution:
Errors of the Severity Level 16 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be executed this way. You cannot use the MUST_CHANGE option.

Versions:
This error message was introduced with SQL Server 2005.

Example(s):
USE Master;
CREATE LOGIN MyLogin
 WITH PASSWORD = ‘ABC’
 MUST_CHANGE,
 CHECK_POLICY = OFF,
 CHECK_EXPIRATION = ON;
GO

Remarks:
In the above example we try to create a login with the MUST_CHANGE option set on a Windows XP Profession SP 2 System. Because XP does not support this option, the error is raised.
