Subject: Has Password history check (N-2) gone away in 2012R2?

I've been updating our rpc.samr.passwords.badpwdcount test.

My servers were both installed from scratch, with defaults etc.  Of course, or own tests or even policies may have changed things - we do try and set up password history in our tests however. 

What I've noticed is that the 'Password history check (N-2)' check described here, doesn't seem to work any more:

Before I dig further, can you confirm it is expected to remain a feature?
