I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

No, is this a domain joined server or not?

This is the first domain controller in a new domain.
StuartTechnical Architect - CloudCommented:
You need to edit the default GPO in place on the domain by launching Group Policy Management Editor, Computer Configuration –> Policies –> Windows Settings –> Security Settings –> Account Policies –> Password Policy. Disable it in there.

Yep!   Did that on a clients site, at their insistence.  A week later their server had nothing on it but child porn and stolen credit card numbers. Really bad idea.
