    Re: admins and domain admins

    ah right. thanks.

    the complexity issue. we've been asked to implement complex passwords as part of security required for outside access to staff email but the NM thinks that would be a nightmare for pupils as some have enough problems remembering non-complex passwords. I tend to agree.

    its a bit of quandry because if we dont enforce complexity half the staff wont bother with it. And if we do half the kids wont be able to remember their passwords. any suggestions?

    We have a multi domain forest primarily because of that issue.

    There are a few packages out there that can get round this but I forget what they're called off hand. They are mentioned on this forum in a few places though.

    Re: admins and domain admins

    that sounds complicated. i dont think we can do that.

    Just a thought. if we applied complex passwords for everyone, will it force people with non-complex passwords to change them. even if we dont force them with the tick in group policy?

    No, the password policy will only apply when they next change their password. That's why you also set a password expiration policy too.

    I don't understand AdamV's post here. The password policy applies to computers, not users.

    Re: admins and domain admins

    can you not use loopback to make it apply to users, or does loopback only work the other way?

    It's nothing to do with users! It's a computer policy. Loopback just lets you apply the User Configuration settings from the policies that are applied to your computer.
