Re: Remove password complexity from test domain
It looks like I sort of found out why this was happening. I had another domain controller which was not running at the time of the prior test. This DC was not server core but a full install of Server 2008 R2, and was the first DC I had created in this test network.
The changes in Group Policy did propagate onto the first DC but not onto the second (Server Core) DC.
My impression was that creating a second domain controller would guarantee 100% redundancy, and that I would be totally safe if the first DC failed. Is there more to it than that?
