Hello Expert,

I have a WIndows Server 2003 DC,  I created a new GPO to enforce our Password Policy.

I applied it to a test OU and it doesn't work. When I run the RSOP it say's the User Configuraion is denied because it's blank.

Now I understand a User Config needs to be applied to users, and computer config needs to be applied to computers.

Problem is the Password Policy settings are in the Computer Config, so how do you apply them to users in OU's?  Or can you only create a Password Policy in the Default Domain Policy?

Thanks in advance
