OK, this is weird....  In Group Policy we have the Default Domain set
to Disabled.  However, even though it is set to Disabled it does have
settings in it from when it use to be Enabled.  One of the settings is
that the Maximum Password Age is set to 90 Days.  Ok, now in the Group
Policy we have set and enabled on the OU for where my user's and
computers reside we have the Maximum Password Age set to 45 Days.  Now
this is where it gets weird... even though everything I look at (GP
Modeling, GP Results, etc) says that the Maximum Password Age is set
to 45 Days, it appears that the passwords do not expire until they
reach 90 Days?

Any Ideas on this?
