I am about to implement a password policy on the root of our windows 2000 domain. The policy change will force a minimum length of 6 characters.
1) When will users that have less than 6 characters be affected? The next time they login again after the policy is applied OR the next time they are forced to change their password (maybe 2-3 months later).
2) Is there anyway I can stop this policy from applying to a handfull of users?
3) Will this apply to the domain administrator account?
We have many users and I just want to be prepared before implementing the new password policy across the board.
