Cannot update password through Group Policy


  • We need to reset a password that we use on all workstations through windows server 2008 r2 policies. When I open up group policy go to Computer Configurations> Preferences> Control Panel Settings>  Local Users and Groups and click new local user and fill in info below I do not get the password or confirm password options to open up. Why this is happening where before when I would create a user or go in to change the password it, it would allow me to enter in the information. How can I get around this so I can create a GPO to change the password for a local account on each of our systems.
