Q

Different policies within a domain

Can you have different policies governing different types of users within the domain? Specifically, I am looking to have non-privileged users expire and change passwords every 45 days and privileged users every 30.
Unfortunately, no. You cannot have different Account or Password policies within the domain. If you must perform what you describe, you must have two domains.
