  • Gpo changes

    I want to change the current Password Policy, but...I have many remote users, if I change let's say password length, would that affect current users that have shorter passwords and force them to change it? Even though they are remote? Some remote users are set to password never I'm guessing no for them.

    current length is 8. Want to make it 9 or 10.

    The complexity and length requirements will take effect the next time the password is changed. Existing passwords will not be forced to comply.

    However, if you change the expiration, that will affect users. Anyone who has not changed their password and has exceeded the new expiration will be required to change it next time they are connected to the domain network. Remote users will not have issues unless they connect to the network with a VPN.
