What do I have to do to enable my local Password Policy and will it override what the domain is set up as?


Thanks

Can't happen.  Domain policy will override the local no matter what.
You can remove it from the domain and then you will be able to do it.

Question is: what type of accounts should the policy be setup for?
For domain accounts: only the policy that is setup for the domain controller will become effective because the domain passwords are stored on the dc.
For local accounts: make sure the other pw policy is not in effect for your local computer (it does not need to, just on the dc!) and setup a local policy.
