Password Requirements

Tommy Addison

Hi,

A while back now, I enabled the password complexity requirements using Group
Policy, but I have now tried to take it off.
However, it is still asking for complex passwords when they are changed, and
for the life of me, I cant find anywhere that it is set
It isnt set in the top-level default domain policy, nor in any subsequent OU
policies that I have set up

Does anybody know what this can be? or where else this setting may be being
applied from?

Cheers
Tommy

This can be only set on the domain level so search there . Try to user
gpresult to see from which GPO this settings are inherited.

Bear in mind, also, that if you had it set to Enabled and you change it to
Not Configured it will not be disabled. You need to explicitly set it to be
Disabled instead.

Hi Tommy Addison,

Password complexity requirements Policy can only be applied on Domain
based. It cant be applied on OU or Domain controller. Right click on
<domain name> on AD users and Computers. Check for linked Group policy
Objects -> Edit the Group policy object -> Modify the required policies ->
or delete the linked GPO (if you dont want to apply).

Hope this will help to solve your problem.

Thanks,
