Ok.

Ahem, someone out there need it. ;-)

This mean that, if i keep a 'check password script', i could also hit
some trubles on, eg, workstation join or the renew of the machine
password?

Ok, i mean that: i can setup password policies on GPOs, but the DCs
cannot ''enforce'' it.


So, trying to summarize:

a) 'check password script' are called for every password change, also
 the ''system'' one (join, ...); this can be a potential source of
trouble.

b) password policies defined with 'samba-tool domain passwordsettings
 set' are ''per DCs'', they not get ''replicated''.

c) if you need to enforce password policies in a domain, you have to
 set password policies for every DCs.


Right? Thanks.


PS: and domain members? How they enforce passwords policies? Directly
  on AD DC, i suppose... but i'll ask. ;-)
