Setting password policies via GPO or SBS standard console?
I am about to enforce password policies at my company but after testing I realize my GPO while active is not being used. It seems that the policy set in the SBS 2011 Standard Console for password policies is being used. My question is: In SBS2011 should I be using the console to do password policies or can I use GPO's? If so, which default GPO will make changes to the password policies. I was modifying the 'Default GPO' but I guess that is not it.
When I do a 'Net Account' on the DC it shows me the current password policy set in the Standard Console and not my GPO's.
