Does a change to a password policy mean everyone will need to immeadiately change their password?

If I make a change to our password policy, like changing the length or complexity, will everyone be asked to update their password the next time they login. What about those outside the new policy? If our admin accounts obey the current policy, will they asked to be hanged.
What if there are currently exceptions to the policy. We have a few passwords circumvent the policy. I don't know if they had been or even could be force by an administrator. Or, more likely an OU was not set to inherit the policy. Will those change instantly? We may have a few of these passwords we don't want to change now, like ones that bring a piece of equipment online. Is there a way around that?
