Password expiration

I was extremely surprised to see "Your password has expired..." notification upon login.

Such policies do not improve security and in 2019 that is kind of well known. For people using software or hardware password managers with long random passwords it is just a nuisance and unnecessary waste of time, as 48 random characters are not going to be brute-forced. For those memorizing their passwords it is an encouragement to use easily guessable patterns.

Once again, I am very surprised and disappointed to have to waste my time on generating new random password and updating it in my password manager in August 2019. I do hope that HPE will implement modern measures that actually protect user's accounts, like 2FA.
