GPO question

I have not dabbled into GPO's in awhile, my question is straight forward. I created a gpo by right clicking on an OU unit called "test", and made a policy titled TEST ,  with password policy changes under computer configuration. My test OU has 3 test users (test1,test2,test3), when I log into the domain now as test1 appears the password policy is not applying, example testing password length of 7. I suspect the domain default policy overrides this OU policy? Do i need to use the "block policy inheritance" ? I am also in a citrix environment , and ultimately a policy will be applied to users under the OU to enforce stronger PCI policies. Using MS server 2003.

In 2003, Password policies can only be set at the domain level.

Well, let me correct myself.  You CAN set password policies anywhere you want but only the domain level will take.
