This topic explains how to use the Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell to apply a fine-grained password policy.

The following example demonstrates how to apply the fine-grained password policy DomainUsersPSO to the global security group Domain Users:

Add-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicySubject DomainUsersPSO -Subjects 'Domain Users'

The following example demonstrates how to apply the fine-grained password policy DlgtdAdminsPSO to two users with the samAccountName(s) BobKe and KimAb:

Add-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicySubject DlgtdAdminsPSO -Subjects BobKe,KimAb

For a full explanation of the parameters that you can pass to Add-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicySubject, at the Active Directory module command prompt, type Get-Help Add-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicySubject –detailed, and then press ENTER.
