I have two group policies and have them linked to the administrators group and other groups as well.  These two policies do not appear to be taking affect.  I have had them set for weeks.  As an administrator I changed my password today and as a test, I entered just four digits.  It allowed that password change.  The policy that is linked requires at least 8 characters and complex.  I now wonder if these policies are being enforced on any groups in our AD.  I then attempted to change my password to a more complex password and was given the message that the password does not meet the minimum requirements of the domain.  The old password did not, the new password I wanted to set did.  I had to go into the AD users and set a temporary password and then it allowed me to change it.
