In my ActiveDirectory have 2 password policies applied. One via GPO(Default Police Manager) and the other determined by set-ADDefaultDomainPasswordPolicy.

Which policy has priority and How to reset ADDefaultDomainPasswordPolicy values ​​determined by cmdlet with "Set-ADDefaultDomainPasswordPolicy" command?

    Hi @Snoow99

    The default domain password policy can be modfied via GPO ( default domain policy) or Powershell.

    So we cannot talk about priority because the both method can be used to modify the same password policy.

    We talk about priority in case of use many Password polices created via Fine grained password policy feature.
