    Re: password complexity help

    I've note tried it, but Password Filter DLL looks like it might be of use. It's a generic Password Filter that calls a user definable script on password change events. It should be a simple matter to look up the username in AD, check the OU the user is in and... well, you can guess the rest.

    I believe Windows Server 2008 will allow password complexity policies to be set at OU level and not just domain level.

    I don't think setting up two domains justifies the time just for password complexity policies. It'd be much better to compromise such settings to cater for all users.

    As an alternative, I run Rainbowcrack with Rainbow tables against my DC weekly for 3 hours. If an accounts password gets broken within that time limit, then the 'change password at next login' account attribute is flagged. Shoddy passwords are broken rather quickly. It's so easy it's not funny.

    If BadGuy is in a position to do that it's already <<Game Over>>

    But I suppose it does help train your users in good habits they might apply elsewhere.
