Password Policy for Windows 2003
Posted on 2006-04-28
I am running a windows 2003 domain and I implemented the following password policy:
Enforce password history 24 passwords remembered
Maximum password age 182 days
Minimum password age 2 days
Minimum password length 5 characters
I changed these settings in the default domain controller policy. I have verified that no other policies at any level Site, Domain, OU have any other policy settings. The problem is users are still being asked to change their passwords about every 40 days. Any ideas on what is causing this?
