You can set it at a group poilicy set at the domain level like every other version of Active Directory

Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Account Policies/Password Policy

If your domain functional level is at 2008 or higher you can also use fine grained passwords if you want different policies for different groups/users.   You can now do that via a GUI
