45 days account log in

I setup a company so that users have to reset there password every 45 day's. I found out that you can't set it on an OU, it must be set on the default domain GP. All is working correctly except that I now also have to very 45 day's change the administrators pwd, which is not the problem. The problem is that there are some software like Backupexe 2012 that every time I change the pwd, I will have to go into the program and change it there also.
I want to know if there is a way that I can set it up so that the admin account never has to reset the pwd.

Thank you all

If you have Server 2008 or later you can use fine-grained password policies to apply different policies to different global security groups.

I have tried the fine-grained password policies to apply different policies to different global security groups.

There is nothing else.

If you follow the process there is no reason the fine-grained password policy will not work
Make sure your domain is at the 2008 functional level (or later).

I set it all up and it seems to work, however when I tried setting it so that I don't have to reset the password ever, it dose not allow it do due to the pwd setting already in place.

you just need to select the attached option for the account which needs to be excluded. it will override to GPO.
