Force strong password for teachers only
We are planning on enforcing stronger passwords onto our teaching staff as we are moving to 1 computer in each classroom for registration.
Does anyone know how we can go about forcing password strength but ONLY for certain OU's (specifically the teachers OU's).
As far I can tell it only seems to be domain wide - so would affect students.
We are running a vanilla win2k domain with separate OU's for students and staff.
Any help would be fantastic

I believe password policies are domain-wide, hence you cannot set them for a particular group/ou. There are third-party tools to get around this, IIRC specops do one. Server 2008 might let you do it as well (?)

It does. I've not done it (we have separate domains for staff and students) but it is now there.

Password policy is set at Domain Level therefore you can only have one rule for everyone. The way round this is of course to have separate domains for staff and pupils.
