Property sets

A property set consists of a group of related properties (or attributes). Granting access rights to a property set rather than to individual properties greatly improves performance and simplifies security management.

Domain Password

Password and account lockout properties for the domain are stored in the Directory Service as attributes of the domain object. These properties can also be managed through the user interface using the Domain Security Policy Group Policy object, the values are then sychronized to the Directory Service. Password policies as well as all account policies are domainwide and applied to all members of the domain.
