We just migrating off Novell and I'm trying to implement a password through GP. As a test I've moved my computer and user account into a test OU and applied a GP that enforces a password policy. The policy states the following
password history is 3 entries
max password age is 1 day (for test purposes)
min age is 0 days
min password length is 7 char
complexity is enabled
lockout threshold is 3
lockout duration is 30min
lockout reset is 30min
After implementing the policy I refreshed it on my w2k workstation. So a day has gone by (does it go by hours or by the date??) and it hasn't prompted me to change my password. Do I need to reboot in order for this to happen? If so that would not be very good considering most in our organization reboot once a month.
Also when my computer was locked I purposely entered more than 3 wrong passwords and it didn't lock me out.
