I need to force a password change and password rule change in a Windows 2008r2 environment

Last Modified: 2015-03-10
We need to start enforcing rules that require users to change their password every 30 days and I may need to require the passwords to be more difficult, such as requiring caps, special characters, etc. I know this can be done with a GPO but need advice. The is a Windows 2008r2 domain with forest level 2008r2 as well.  All comments welcome...thanks
