Hi,

Urgently help required.

I am working on Windows 2000 network as a Adminstrator. As we don;t have any
option like "Maximum Password length" (Under the Security Settings->Account
Policies->Password Policy.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<s:Schema xmlns:s="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xml-data"
xmlns:dt="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:datatypes" >
<s:AttributeType name="userID"
xmlns:dt="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:datatypes"
dt:type="string" />
<s:AttributeType name="password"
dt:type="string"
dt:minLength="6"
dt:maxLength="8"/>
<s:ElementType name="LoginInfo" >
<s:attribute type="userID" />
<s:attribute type="password" />
</s:ElementType>
</s:Schema>

HYPER LINK :- "http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en
-us/xmlsdk/htm/xsd_xdrdev_8d7p.asp"

I got to know that to achieve the goal of adding the Maximum Password Length
attribute, we have to make some changes on Schema Master (Root). A person/u
ser must have an access to Schema Master and should be the member of Schema
Admins Group.

I have this .xml coding with me and want to add to schema. I am confused whe
re i have to go and write this coding and what interface i have to use and w
here i have to write this code in windows 2000 Root DC in Forest (Schema Mas
ter Role).

Hoped to get positive replies from all.

Thanks in Ton!

Hey Ton why dont you do this.

Start
Run
gpedit.msc
Go to Local Computer Policy
Computer Configuration
Windows Settings
Security Settings
Account Policies
Password Policy

In there you will find your option if you know this and need help in writing a script in .xml that isn't me.
