15 character password & 365 Day Maximum Password Age Issue

    I used ADSIEdit to enforce a 15-character password in my Server 2003 domain,
    which was successful. I then changed the Maximum Password Age in Active
    Directory Users & Computers to 365 days, but the password continues to expire
    after 42 days (the default setting). I see in ADSIEdit on Server 2008 the
    syntax is different than that in Server 2003 (days:hours:minutes:seconds in
    2008 vs. a huge "-number interval" in 2003). I would like to be able to set
    the password to expire after 365 days in my 2003 domain. Any ideas how I
    accomplish this, short of installing a 2008 DC into my environment? Any
    feedback is greatly appreciated.
