Configure Fine-grained Password Policies In Windows Server 2008

So called fine-grained password policies are a new feature of Windows Server 2008. This new feature allows system administrators to configure password policies for different user groups. Windows Server 2003 was not as flexible as it only allowed to set one password policy for all users. The manual configuration of fine-grained password policies requires quite some time. A software program like Specops Password Policy Basic is therefor a handy addition for every system administrator dealing with Windows Server 2008 systems.
The free program is a limited version of the commercial software from the same developer. It requires the Microsoft .net Framework 2, the Microsoft Management Console and PowerShell. The interface of the application makes it less time consuming to configure password policies for specific user groups in Windows Server 2008. It basically centers around creating, configuring and managing password policies.
