Password expiration

Hi everybody,
I need to configure the password expiration for each user, on a
Windows Server 2003 x64 Service Pack2. There are many different users,
so I'd like to change their password expiration individually.
I saw that it is possible to change, for all users, the default
"Maximum password age". Is it possible to change it for individual
users?? How can I do?


Thanking you in advance
Cheers
Carmelo

Re: Password expiration

You could create different OU's, put the users in their respective OU,
depending on password expiration, and then have a GPO for each OU for
password expiration.

Re: Password expiration

That can only be done in Windows Server 2008. Before w2k8 all password
policies apply to the entire domain only.
