FGPP at Windows 8 server

Posted by techsnapshots on April 6, 2012


 Windows 8 server significantly cut short FGPP configuration. Now it is more simple and quick. 

Image

this is the default password policy for the domain 

Image

Go to the Active Directory Administrative Center. and highlight the domain (here Contoso is highlighted ) in the Middle pane it shows the Folders with Type in that choose Password Settings container and on right Task Pane it shows the action items. 

Image

From right pane Tasks item choose new- > Password settings 

Image

Provide a name and selects the options that suits your requirements . for  example ,  here i have chosen  the password length minimum 5 char  and modified some other settings with new values.  further below put Rita Simon as my trarget object. target object will be only users or Group

Image

FGPP is configured. The Precedence is 1. its mean, it has higher priority. the user and group objects may have multiple FGPP with precedence value. lower the precedence , higher the value it has. 

Image

the user login and try to change her password maintaining the minimum length of 5 character .

Image

the user is able to log in with her new and short password configured with FGPP.
