    Password Expiration - Different for Staff / Students (Mixed PCs)

    Hi all,

    Currently our "Password Policy" GP forces a password reset after 90 days.
    I am looking to increase this for STUDENTS only to maybe 5/6months.

    As this is a Computer policy, i was wondering if this is possible or anyone has a way around it?
    Teachers/TAs occasionally use the Students computers etc
    Ive attempted creating 2 separate GPs and then using GP filtering but no joy.

    Do some schools not set an expiry for student passwords?

    Any ideas please?

    In a 2003 domain you can only have 1 password policy.

    Not in 2003.

    There's suppoised to be third party tools that can do it, but personally I've never used any - and as they're not M$ supported I'd never be happy having them there.

    2008 can handle 'fine grained policies' - have a look here AD DS: Fine-Grained Password Policies
