SBS 2003 Default domain policy vs. SBS Domain password policy
Posted on 2007-10-02
I have a server with Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2 installed, for which I'm looking to implement password policies. However I've noticed that in group policies that there are two policies which setup the maximum password age,length, complexity etc. These are:
Default Domain Policy
Small Business Server Domain Password Policy
When I use the SBS2003 wizard to setup the policy the 'Small Business Server Domain Password Policy' is updated but the 'Default Domain Policy' is not updated.
Which policy will overwrite the other policy?
They are both linked and located under domain.local on the tree?
Also I've noticed that some of the settings of 'Default Domain Policy' are also replicated in the 'Small Business Server Lockout Policy'.
So I need to know is this correct and wil lthe 'SBS Domain Password Policy' overrule the 'Default Domain Policy'
Any help would be appreciated
