    wtf? i’ve never had policy affect the local admin before (believe me, i’ve tried. well, in xp, anyways). this is a brand new install of w7 pro on a 2003 domain.

    is this something new in w7?

    btw, the policy that’s messing with me is the minimum pw age, which is set to 2 days. so, i can just wait until tomorrow to change it. still, i’d like to know what’s going on…
