I have a requirement to change the Minimum Password Length on my domain from 6 characters to 8 characters. The DFL is W2K8. I am trying to test this policy change on a few users before a sweeping domain change is made. I need to determine if all users will be immediately prompted to change there passwords once this new is policy is turned on. I originally thought that I could create a new GPO and link it to a single user to see what the RSOP would be.
I discovered that to deploy more than one password policy on a W2K8 domain you must configure a Fine-Grain Password Policy to accomplish this task. Does anyone have step-by-step instructions on how to configure Fine-Grain Password Policies?
