from ad users and computers (ADUC console), for a windows 2008 server, can you see the local password policy for any local accounts on the server? If so can you show how?

I don't believe AD knows anything about local PC policies

If the server is a DC then there are no local users. DC's only use domain accounts.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Goto, Start, Administrative Tools - Local Security Policy.

In the window that opens up. Expand Account Policy and click on Password Policy.

this shouuld show you the password policy for the local machine.

Often the Administrator account on a PC has no password. Just boot in safe mode F8.

Since it's not Windows 7 this might work - http://forums.techarena.in/operating-systems/1208838.htm

HI,

If you want to see the local policy of server, it cannot be viewed from ADUC.

If you want to see the default domain policy, then you can check that in ADUC.

For local password policy, you need to check manually in the server.

Regards,
Prem
