Windows 2008 domains allow different password policies (Fine-Grained
Password) to be applied to different user accounts in the same domain. Policies
can be applied either to user accounts or groups.
PPM tool is a simple tool that allows you to create new Password Security Object
(PSO) and apply it to selected objects (users or groups). You can also use this
tool to search, modify or delete any existing password settings object (PSO).
Advanced features of the tool allows you to search for objects (users, groups or
existing PSO) and change or view PSO related settings applied to the objects. You
can also export the setting to LDF formatted file.
