Administrator account Password Policy for multiple domain WAN

Ok, I'm currently looking after "Domain A" for example and the Default Domain Policy (Password Policy) is currently set to 183 days.  Which is great for all users logging on to "Domain A", right?
   
Now my question is... What password policy (if it is not set to expire) does the Administrator account use? Where can I find this information?

it is using the policy in its own domain.   Password policies are applied on a domain basis.  They can't cross domains.

The admin account still uses that policy but the check box setting it to not expire trumps that setting so you will never be prompted to change the password on that account as long as that box is checked. (this goes for any account with that box checked)

Thanks

Ok, excuse my "lack of knowledge" in this area but presumably the administrator account is the same across all the domains?
   
What happens if someone has set a Default Domain Policy password policy on another domain does the same?
   
What policy is it using?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I take it you are talking about the Domain Admin account, or are you referring to the local Administrator account?
In which case the policy for local accouts can still be set via group policy under:
>Computer Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Account Policies/Password Policy

So it definitely won't be replicating from another site?

Definitely not to another domain
