I made a GPO with Security settings (Stronger password policy) for our company

We run Domain functional level: Windows Server 2003, because we still have some few Windows Server 2003 DC’s left in the organization

I created an AD Security Group for test purpose and added a test workstation to this group.

My problem is that the GPO gets applied to the test workstation (as winning GPO), but when I try to change password on the workstation, the criterias for a new password is not the ones specified in the Password GPO, but they seem to come from the DC’s Local computer Policy instead.

Can somebody help me with this problem?
