I have a GPO for our network. With the PCI complience it's reccommended that the passwords expire every 90 days, etc. I have the Policy in place, linked and enforced but nothing seems to be happening.
How can I get this to function? Take a look at my screen shot. What am I doing wrong here?

Make sure that there is not another password policy applied/set using that Default Domain Policy; if there is that one would win.

You can also move  your password policy up to position 1 just to make sure.

Thanks

That makes sense. I will do check the password policy and move it as well just to make sure. Do they actually have to be enforced? The defualt wasn't actually and that seemed to be working o.k. What's the difference?

They don't have to be enforced but the if one was enforced and the other was not the enforced GPO would always "win"
