How do I find out the password policy when using Advanved SQL Server Options?


This comes up a lot – especially when working with a large number of Dynamics GP customers. Each may have their own password policy and its handy to know what that is when setting up new Dynamics GP users, if they are using Advanced SQL Server options (Enforce Password Policy, Change Password at next logon, Enforce Password Expiry). Secpol.msc is the Local Security Policy editor. Local being the key word…you’re┬áseeing policies for your LOCAL mchine only.

  1. To find out, click Start >> Run, and type in secpol.msc. (You must be logged in as administator.)
  2. Navigate to Security Settings >> Account Policies >> Password Policy.
