Open the Group Policy Management Console (downloadable from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=0A6D4C24-8CBD-4B35-9272-DD3CBFC81887&displaylang=en.

Navigate to <domain name>-->Group Policy Objects.

Right-click on your domain GPO and select Edit.

Navigate to Computer Configuration-->Windows Settings-->Security Settings-->Account Policies-->Password Policies.

Right-click on Enforce password history and click Properties.

Place a check-mark next to Define this policy setting, and enter the # of passwords that you wish to retain in memory.

Hope this helps.

If any portion of these options are greyed out, be sure that you are opening GPMC with account credentials that have permission to modify Group Policy Objects.
