I am having some difficulty enforcing a policy to people added to a group. Would it be possible for someone to give step by step instructions on how to setup the password policy in Active Directory to enforce to people in a certain group?

Hi.

Unless we should start "with Adam and Eve", please give us some details:
-Do you know what PSOs are?
-Do you fulfill the requirements for PSOs (do you know those)?
-lastly, how did you try?

This depends really, you could apply the password policy to a group of machines by creating a new GPO and then linking that a group of machines the users login to OR you can create fine-grained Password Policies which you can apply to a group of users.

To setup the fine-grained password policy follow the below.

No, you cannot apply it to a group of machines. If you did, it would apply to the local accounts on those systems only, not to any domain accounts used on them.

Sorry mcknife thats correct!

But the fine-grained password policy is what the author of the question maybe looking for.
