No matter what I do within the Configure Password Policy screen, the values that I select do not "stick." WHen I return to the page, the presented values are NOT what I selected the last time I left the page. Any ideas on this one???????????????

Well, that's because they don't go into effect until you actually log off and back on.  That is if you select to have them go into effect immediately instead of in the future.  But the Password Policy Wizard Template is not what really defines the policies, so take a look in the Group Policy Management to see what they are really set at.

Open Server Management > Advanced Management > Group Policy Management > Forest: Your Domain > Domains > YourDomain.local > Small Business Server Domain Password Policy > Settings > Show all

You can manually adjust the policy here by right clicking on the settings display > Edit... and open up Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Account Policies > Password Policy.

Once you've made the changes, close all of that out and then run 'GPUPDATE /FORCE' at the command prompt which will then make you log off and back on.

Lastly... you must be a member of the Domain Admins group to make any of these changes.
