Trying to implement password policy
Posted on 2004-07-30
I am running windows 2000 server and i would like to implement a password policy, everything i have tried has not worked. I have a couple different group policies set up at the domain level, not as individual OU's. Do i set it up under group policy? This is what I would like done:
Minimum 8 characters
6 passwords remembered
Expires after 90 days
also, i would like to have them locked out after 3 invalid attempts.....there is already lockout policy in place, but I don’t know how it got there, I was messing around with it in several areas and it worked, but I would like to know where its working...
1 last question, when changes are made to the DC such as a password or lockout policy, do they take effect immediately?
