Update passwords to 3DES

Hello

I would like to update our passwords are stored from DES to 3DES. Could you give me any information on how i would go about this and what the implications could be.

Running Windows 2003 server and windows xp desktops.

thanks

Passwords in AD are not stored using either DES or 3DES, please explain what you are attempting to do as what you have said makes no sense.

... are you taking about using 3DES for remote access encryption?
if so this can be set on the Remote Access Profile

... open the remote access policy, select EDIT PROFILE and then select 3DES on the encryption tab.
