How to stop certain users from having to change their passowrds.

Currently I have implemented password complexity and minimum password length with a forced password change every 42 days. However I have a number of machines which are in operations and I do not want the users on those machines to have to change their passwords ever. I do want their password to have to meet the other criteria, minimum length and complexity. I created an OU made the users members and made what I thought were the relevant changes but it still asks them to change every 42 days. How do I do this properly?

Simply check the "password never expires" box in the account tab of their profile.  This will overide the group policy for that user.

Now that has to be one of the easiest 500 pointers ever. Thank you.
