    Password Complexity

    Changing your password policy is not straight forward with Win2003. You actually have to create a new password filter DLL to do it correctly. While this is fine and well...I am a programmer. You'd think it would be something easy to do for server administrators....this is not a good solution for them.

    Active directory and group policy

    Don't know group policy, you don't know security!
    Group policies are updated on the clients when they restart, when they login, or when they poll for changes.
    Group policies are pulled they are not pushed.
