I want to stop my users from just incrementing their existing password once they expire.

For example. User 1 current password is Holiday01, once it expires he changes it to Holiday02.. Next time it expires they will change it to Holiday 03 and so on.

How can I stop them from incrementing? I want them to select a new password that is not based on words used by the previous.

Thanks

as long as they meet the complexity requirements then what they are doing is going to be ok as far as AD is concerned, you can try a 3rd party app but thats about it

i agree with JayJay.  if they meet the complexity requirements, then it AD will accept it as a 'good' password.  Ive never heard of any third party apps that will solve this though.
