Hi nareshver,
considering this is a security policy, this must be set at the domain level, for it to be enforced. Anyway, you can easily take a look at all settings defined by your policies, using Group Policy Management Console (GPMC), from Microsoft (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=0A6D4C24-8CBD-4B35-9272-DD3CBFC81887&displaylang=en)
Look especially at the Resultant Set of Policies (RSOP) tool, inside GPMC.

Elbereth.

You can also download a reference document that lists all the policies.  This can be a big help when you're not quite sure what your looking for and can use general search terms.  You can download the document here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=7821C32F-DA15-438D-8E48-45915CD2BC14&displaylang=en

Any password security policy is generally set in the Default Domain Policy.   You can access this policy by:

opening Active Directory Users and Computers
right click on the domain object (at the top of the tree)
select properties
select the group policy tab
highlight the Default Domain Policy and select edit
under computer configuration expand Windows Settings >Security Settings >Account Policies >Password Policy

Hope this helps.  Let me know if I need to clarify anything.

nareshver,

Password policies need to be set in the Default Domain Policy, and can only be set "per domain".  You cannot set a different password policy for different OU's, etc.

The settings are like Crow said, in the Computer Configuration.

TheCleaner suggestion and mine seem to be very close: I'd say that I shouldn't be excluded from the split.

So it is, I can't see why I didn't include you

Recommendation change: 3 way split

Sorry for the confusion
