An AD domain contains a password policy that is applied to all users. However, in some cases, it is necessary to apply a different policy to one or more users.

Since Windows Server 2008 Microsoft has made available the refined password functionality. Windows Server 2012 improves functionality by providing a graphical interface. This makes it easier to configure these AD objects (PSO – Password Security Object). In Windows Sever 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2, access the Active Directory Administration Center console.
