The domain password policy is used throughout the domain for domain user


If you create an OU level GPO and set the pw policy in that it will
apply to the local password and account policies for the computers in
that OU

Subject: [gptalk] Password Policy Creation



I have always been led to believe that Password Policy (password life,
complexity, etc.) is a domain-wide setting.  Yet, I can create Gp
Policies with password settings in them and apply them at the OU level
below the root.  Would this not result in different password
requirements by OU?

If so, do I apply the policy to a user OU or a Machine OU (since the
setting is in the machine setings)?

Thanks very much.
