Fine Grained Password policy (FGPP) complexity notification issues
Posted on 2011-09-25
Hi, we are running a single 2008 domain and currently testing fine grained password policies.
These are working as expected with the exception of the notification that the end user receives when the password complexity is not met. The message displays settings in what I believe is the default domain group policy password complexity settings as opposed to what’s defined in the FGPP.
We are also evaluating the Managed Engine AD Self-service software allowing users to change passwords and unlock their user accounts, the current password complexity settings are also being incorrectly published to this application.
This is what we currently receive, these settings were configured in the default domain policy but have now been set to "not defined".
Domain Password Policy Requirements
The minimum password age is 0
The maximum password age is 0
The minimum password length is 0
No. of Password Remembered is 0
The password complexity property is Disabled
We would like to have the relevant FGPP settings populating these requirements as much as possible; any help would be much appreciated.
I have also ensured that no other group policies have any account policy’s configured.
