    i know, i know…there could be a million reasons why. so, i ran a gp model against a typical user, and her laptop. the results show (see attached screenshot) that the default domain policy wins, and password enforcement should be working.

    can anyone advise on how to troubleshoot this?

    this is server 2003 std, sp2.

    thx!

    wait a second…

    does “password never expires” in the ad account override gpo password policy?

    a quick google confirms that it does. mystery solved.

    Also only domain level password GPOs will apply, so if the policy is at site or OU level, it will not get applied
