We have just installed a new Windows 2008 server in our office.  We are trying to configure the new users for the server.  We only have the one server and we are running AD services on  it.  We are logged in as the administrator.  When we try to change the password policy for the users it is grayed out.  Dont know why.

To create new users in a domain, please use "Active Directory Users and Computers" console. And if you wish to modify domain password policy, you need to use GPMC.msc console and edit "Default Domain Policy".
