    Hello

    I facing a problem with ACTIVE DIRECTORY PASSWORD POLICY which is running on windows 2003

    I have implemented password policy for the users which states:

    Policy Setting
    Enforce password history 5 passwords remembered
    Maximum password age 1 days
    Minimum password age 0 days
    Minimum password length 6 characters
    Password must meet complexity requirements Enabled
    Store passwords using reversible encryption Enabled

    For Test reasons i chose for 1 days.
    I did a GPUPDATE /FORCE and rebooted.

    Following this i checked to see if its really been implemented using the command :
    gpresult

    It shows that its there is an password been there.

    But after 1 day on my next log-on it never asked for a new password???? Meaning the passord Policy didnot exsist.

    I search on the log file UserEnv.log on the user (Client machine) and it produces me this.
    SERENV(2b4.2b8) 11:53:16:137 DumpOpenRegistryHandle: 2 user registry Handles leaked from \Registry\User\S-1-5-21-1876315153-1648240656-316617838-3652
