Hi All - To start this off on the right foot; I know, it doesn't work this way.  So with that said...

I have a situation where users in a domain have password policies (length, time, etc..)  However, when I pull the resultant set of policies for those users, there are NO policies pertaining to passwords.  If I manually look at the Default Domain Policy, Default Domain Controller Policy, or any other policy that is applied to the user OU (and I know this should only be applied from default domain policy) - there is NO policy set; they all show as "not defined".  So I opened the local policy on the DC ... this is where I find the policy for passwords that match the behavior the users experience (length, time, etc..).
HOW is this possible?  The GUID used should be completely different, no?  Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!
