ProblemBefore server 2008 if you wanted more than one password policy, you had to create a sub domain just to do that! with Server 2008 we were given fine grained password policies, which were fine (if a little clunky), and involved you creating ‘Password Settings Objects’.
Solution1. From Server Manager (ServerManager.exe) > Local Server > Tools > Active Directory Administrative Center.
To See What Policies are Applying to a User6. Locate the user (while still in Active Directory Administrative Center) Right click > View resultant password settings > If a policy is in place it will open.
