Implement Password policy - Server 2008 R2 Domain

I would like to implement a password policy on our domain.
Min 8 Characters
Upper, Lower case Letters and numbers
Can't use previous 4 passwords.

First question, where do I implement this in Server 2008 GP?

Second question, if I implement now, will all users imediatly be prompted to change? or can I give them X days to do it? We have a lot of roaming users, so need to give them a chance to come into the office and change before it expires.

Here is the steps to meet your requirement.

Once you implement the policy then it will start working from next login or next reboot.

Appreciated.
We are using Xenapp for published apps and desktops also. So this may present a problem. The users will be able to log into their local PC outside the office, but when they try stream a Xenapp App or desktop, it will not be able to reset their password.

Suggestions?

Is it possible to implement the policy, but the users not have to change until the password expires next? So then they will have the 14 days prompts to change?

Once you implement the policy xenapp will popup users to change the policy based on your policy  configuration. Policy start working based on your policy configuration.

This will be fine for everyone logged onto Xenapp at the time I assume. But everyone that is not logged on, I guess they wont be able to.

Also our roaming users all pass through our Proxy server for browsing. There is definitely no way to implement the policy where it gives everyone notice before hand?

If anyone knows how to implement this policy but give the users X days to change their password the 1st time that would be great.
