"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Open Group Policy Management, expand Forest: <your domain>, Domains, <your domain> and right-click Default Domain Policy and choose Edit...
In the Group Policy Management Editor, expand Default Domain Policy [your server.your domain] Policy, Computer Configuration, Policies, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Account Policies, Password Policy.
There you can see the current password policy settings ands change them to whatever you like.
