Suppose that if I installed a Windows 2003 Server on my PC including the Active Directory.
I would like to know the group policy that applied to a particular user, to be specific I would like to know the minimum password length policy.

What is the best way to find it out? Actually, At the moment I am kind of confuse on which group policy will be applied if there are more than one...

you can run a gpresult from the command prompt of the client to find the applied policies

policy application is like thie

LSDOU

Local
Site
Domain
Organisation Unit

last applied wins, so anything on an OU will overwrite any other settings

also, if you right click on the OU that the user resides in, and run a RSOP (resultant set of policy planning mode), you will see exactly what settings are being applied for the users within that OU

Adding to what Jay said, you can also run an RSOP report for a particular computer using Group Policy Managment Console (GPMC).  If you are going to start getting into group policy then learn this tool.

One of my favorite Group Policy MVP's has some really good videos about GPMC

and they are free to watch

Remember the password policy needs to be set at the domain level.




Thanks
