    Hello,
    I wonder if it is possible to set a password policy to a OU that is
    different then the one set on the domain?
    For example, I have some users that work most of the time from external
    locations, for them I want to force strong passwords (they are in a separated
    OU) and for the rest of the users I want only a simple password.

    Is it possible and how can I do it?
    What I think is strange : the settings for "user" passwords has to be found
    under "computer configuration" and not under "user configuration" or isn't
    that strange at all?
    Thanks for your help
    grtz

  2. Unfortunately, no. There can be only one password policy per domain and you
    can't make it more granular, e.g. per OU.

  3. you can disable policy inheritance on the OU, and then you can have
    different settings in it
