I want to 1-extend the life of passwords to 180 days and 2-increase the minimum password length in a Windows 2003 domain. While I understand that the minimum length requirement won't be enforced until the user changes their password (correct?), I'm unclear of the impact of extending the password expiration policy. If I change both at once, will life of current passwords (that probably don't meet the new requirement) be extended? I don't want to allow the longer password life on passwords not meeting the new length requirement. Thanks.
