Our current password policy is as follows:

Enforce history: 6 days
Maximum Age: 60 days
Minimum age: 1 day
Mimimum Length: 8 characters
Complexity: enabled
encryption: disabled

We want users to be able to change their password twice before the minimum age restriction goes into effect.

Ex 1: current envrionment (assuming same day)
usera changes password -> accepted
usera changes password again -> denied

Ex 2: desired environment (assuming same day)
usera changes password -> accepted
usera changes password -> accepted
usera changes password again -> denied

Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated.

You won't be able to that using the native GP settings.  You can try a third party pw tool   http://www.specopssoft.com/products/specops-password-policy not sure that will even do it.

Thanks

I agree with the previous comment - you cannot do what you are asking without a 3rd party tool

If it can't be done in Group Policy, it can't be done.  Thanks mkline.
