AD password policies are domain wide, are there other such policies?

By mike_mize ·
One of our administrators has asked for a list of all policies that share the password policy's "one per domain" limitation (for lack of a better discription). I've hunted through Google and Microsoft but I can't find such a list. Does anyone know of such a list or of a rule that defines such policies? The idea is to provide OU admins a list of unmodifiable policies so they don't waste time trying to modify them.

Thank you.

Domain wide GPOs

This is a bit of pithy answer so I'll write a blog article which will explain it a bit more at some point soon but basically anything that is created at the domains level will be applied to everything in the domain. There are certain policies such as password policy, account lockout and so on that are ONLY relevant for a single domain.
