Windows Server 2008: control passwords in group policy

This is a short video about how to create password policies in a Server 2008 Active Directory domain. The policies are already configured, but this shows how to modify them. You can also use similar methods in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and 2000 Server. Similar settings are also available in local group policy in an Microsoft Management Console (MMC). You can set these policies locally on Microsoft Windows 7, Vista, XP, or 2000.

The policies are located at…
Computer Configuration / Policies / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Account Policies / Password Policy

The six settings are…
Enforce Password History
Maximum password age
Minimum password age
Minimum password length
Password must meet complexity requirements
Store passwords using reversible encryption
