Specops Password Policy Basic
Specops Password Policy Basic is used to configure fine-grained password policies in Windows Server 2008. Specops Password Policy Basic is a feature limited and free version of Specops Password Policy.
Fine-grained password policies is a new feature in Windows Server 2008 that can be used to specify multiple password policies and apply different password restrictions and account lockout policies to different sets of users within a single domain. Password policies apply only to user objects (or inetOrgPerson objects if they are used instead of user objects) and global security groups. Fine-grained password policy cannot be applied to an organizational unit (OU) directly.
Note! To be able to use the fine-grained password policy feature, the ENTIRE domain must be running in Windows Server 2008 mode and all domain controllers must be Windows 2008 servers.
