Active Directory and Group Policy's .....
Posted on 2001-08-03
Hope someone can help :-)
I have setup Active Directory on a Windows 200 Advanced server box, and I have Windows 2000 Professional installed on another box. Under Active Directory I have added an Organisation Unit, called test. Under this, I have added the client computer account and have added a sample user. When I add a new policy at the test OU level to force the user to have a password of greater that say 7 chars, and setup the user to change password at next login. (I do this under the computer section of the policy) When the client logs in as the sample user they are prompted to choose a password, but any length is allowed!! Why is this??? If I change any of the policy entried to do with the user, say Hide all Desktop icons, it works okay!!!
It's confusing me - anyone any ideas???
