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.

Hello

Sorry for the confusion. I have just been instructed to change our passwords from DES to 3DES.

I gather from your responses that it applies to remote access.

thankyou for your quick responses
