We are currently in a situation where I think we will need multiple domain password policies. Let me tell you our situation, and you give me advice.
We have had our normal domain password policy setup for a year or so. Everything is normal here (password complexity, account lockout, etc.)
However..........we are now adding a barcoding inventory system. These use Symbol RF scan guns. These scan guns will be using Terminal Services to remote back into the TS server for the application. However..........being a handheld, we do not need the normal complexity that our desktop users have. Being that it has a very small keypad, we need to have a seperate password policy just for the handheld user accounts.
I have created a new OU for the handheld accounts. But, I know that this OU is still inherting the domain password policy from the Default Domain Policy.
This is Server 2003. I'm going in through the Group Policy Management Console to try to block inheritance...........but this isn't working. Of course, I'm still not overly familiar with the GPMC. I'm still used to going in to ADUC to edit Group Policy.
Any advice here?
Is it possible to do this?
