Q

Overriding default domain password policy

I have a question that I would like to get some clarification on. I'm setting up a Windows Server 2003 environment and I'd like to have different password policies depending on OU membership. It looks like there's no way to override the default domain password policy short of removing the default domain policy. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks for the help.
We've answered this in previous questions. That is, you cannot have separate password policies based on OU design. The password is an attribute of the domain level.
