    Hi Guy's,

    I have a W2k3 server, clean install, which I have promoted to a DC.

    Prior to it being a DC I could hapilly use a 6 or 7 character password of my choosing.

    After promotion to a DC whan I try and create a new (domain) user the 'password does not meet complextiy requirements' message appears. The same happens if I try to change the Administrator password.

    Ok, So I could meet the reqiurements using a password of uppercase, lowercase, numbers, etc. But I don't want to.

    I have been into the default domain GPO and set all of the password complexity requirements as 'Not Defined' but the error message still comes up.

    Any ideas? :blink

    Ahh, So it needs to be defined, just at a lower value.

    I never knew that! :rolleyes:

    Thanks TG. :biggrin
