Greetings all,

We have an active directory domain which enforces a strict password policy. Hooray!

Now, for the project we are working on, we are going to be storing users of our website Microsoft's AD-LDS service as well as using that for authentication of our web users.

By default, it is my understanding that AD-LDS inherits its password policy from the domain of the machine it's installed on. Is there any way to break that link such that we can define a lighter password policy (or none if we so choose) for users in AD-LDS without affecting our domain?

Note: AD-LDS is going to be hosted on a machine which is part of the domain.

Thanks in advance.
