Yet Another GUI tool for Windows Server 2008 fine-grained password management
Fine-grained password policies - described in a previous post - is a new feature in Windows Server 2008 that can be used to specify multiple password policies and apply different password restrictions and account lockout policies to different sets of users within a single domain. Password policies apply only to user objects (or inetOrgPerson objects if they are used instead of user objects) and global security groups. Fine-grained password policy cannot be applied to an organizational unit (OU) directly.

Specops Password Policy Basic is used to configure fine-grained password policies in Windows Server 2008.
Specops Password Policy Basic is a feature limited and free version of Specops Password Policy.
