Using adsi edit to create a new policy on 2008 active directory

Hi, I'm testing creating a new account policy object using adsi edit where by i am changing the max and min password age. I can create the objects but what im stuck on is how do i link them to a particular group? I want to create a new object and link it to a group called ITAdmin. I have created an OU called ITAdmin under the domain within AD users and computers.

When i ran the GP modelling wizard for a member of the ITAdmin group it didn't pickup the new changes within the security section so i don't know how to link it to an actual group.

Any help most appreciated.

So if i am understanding correctly, you are creating a PSO (password settings Object) in 2008/R2 domain for additional password policies? If this is correct take a look at the link below.

Create PSO:

If you are simply changing the default domain policy then just use GPMC to do this.
