I need to change the password life for the administrator in server 2008 standard. It changes every 30 days. I have changed the group policy for users, but can't figure out how to get admin to be permanent or at least longer. Causing issues with connectivity to other networks.

What did you change in AD...did you check "password never expires"  Yes that will keep it from expiring in 30 days.
Is your domain at 2008 functional level.  If it is you can also use fine grained passwords to define a different set of policies for a group of users (admins in this case)

That feature was not available in 2000/2003
Thanks
