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. 


this is the default password policy for the domain 


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. 


From right pane Tasks item choose new- > Password settings 


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


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. 


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


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

    Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i
    was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?
    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

    I blog often and I seriously appreciate your information. The article has really peaked my
    interest. I will bookmark your site and keep checking for new details about once
    a week. I opted in for your Feed as well.

  4. First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.

    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any suggestions or tips? Cheers!
