When an Automation Server is attached to an Enterprise Server, all of the password policy configurations are inherited from the enterprise server. Therefore the AS settings cannot be changed. 


The password policies of the Automation Server must be administered from the ES when it is connected to an Enterprise Server.


In order to make changes to the password policy settings in the Automation Server directly, it must be detached from the Enterprise Server.
