location of account policies

    Question

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 sp1

    i have password expiry configured for 30 days initially but was changed to 90 days in the account policies. it was working fine for the 30 days but seems that the 90 days expiry is not being observed. i did the changes in

    Computer Configuration/Policies/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Account Policies hive

    based on my previous experience with the location of the IE proxy settings (which was relocated without notice), is the above location for the Account Policies/Password Policy still correct?

    regards,

    Reno

    Yes, but the GPO must (!) be linked to the domain to affect domain accounts.

    NO THEY ARE NOT EVIL, if you know what you are doing: Good or bad GPOs?
    And if IT bothers me - coke bottle design refreshment :))
