If you have installed the group policy templates on the computer, but they do not appear under
Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Lithnet\Password Filterwhen you open the group policy editor, then your domain is likely using a central policy store.
If the password was rejected, but there was no event log entry from LithnetPasswordProtection explaining the reason for the password change, there are two likely reasons for this
- 1.It may be because another password filter, or Windows itself rejected the password. If you use the built-in Windows password policy, those settings are always processed before LPP can review the password. In this case, LPP will never see the password to evaluate it.
- 2.The event log from LithnetPasswordProtection will only appear on the server that processed the password change. This could be any writable domain controller in the domain. Ensure that you check all domain controllers for the event log entry.
