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.
