Hi see the following path in the gpo editor for both server 2003/2008

In Group Policy Object Links, click Default Domain Policy or create and name your Group Policy object, and then click Edit.

Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Account Policies\Account Lockout Policy

Hi Author,

Do you want to set? or check?

The counter is based on an Attribute badpwdcount.

Use powershell, Get-ADDefaultDomainPasswordPolicy,

----------


In addition to the standard Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) attributes, you can retrieve the following extended properties of the Get-ADDefaultDomainPasswordPolicy cmdlet by using the -Properties parameter:

    ComplexityEnabled

    LockoutDuration

    LockoutObservationWindow

    LockoutThreshold

    MaxPasswordAge

    MinPasswordAge

    MinPasswordLength

    PasswordHistoryCount

    ReversibleEncryptionEnabled

For a full explanation of the parameters that you can pass to Get-ADDefaultDomainPasswordPolicy, at the Active Directory module command prompt, type Get-Help Get-ADDefaultDomainPasswordPolicy –detailed, and then press ENTER.

The lockout timer determined by subtracting the lockout-time attribute that is written to the AD account at the time the user is locked out from the current time and comparing it with the lockout windows policy setting. If the result is less than the policy, the account remains locked out. Otherwise, the account is unlocked at login. The actual timer is not stored anywhere. It's just a value determined at login.
