How do I find out which GPO is responsible?

Hi Experts, I have disabled all password complexity on our default domain policy, but when a users tries to change their password the Policy is still enforced. I had a look at all the other policies present on the server, gpupdate /force but still not sure where the settings is coming from. Is there anyway I can find out? Many thanks.

HI Vinchenzo, I have done exactly that what you have said before I posted, but none shows that passwords are configured - could it be a R2 thing where it enforces it by default? I am specifically reffering to the 24 password history and the complexity - want to do away with it.
Thanks.

Hi Dariusg, thanks for the link, I have the exact same problem as that user.  I have disabled the password complexity in the GPO, checked all the others and still its getting enforced.  I have done a gpupdate /force, multiple times both server and client side, over a period of two days, but still the password policy is getting enforced....out of options on how to find where its coming from?
