  • Hello,

    use complex password settings, you need 3 different options from:

    uppercase characters (A through Z)

    lowercase characters (a through z)

    Base 10 digits (0 through 9)

    Non-alphabetic characters (for example, !, $, #, %)

    DON'T contain more then 3 following characters of the username.

  • Hello Csscctv,

    The password must contain at least three of the following four character groups:

     1. English uppercase characters (A through Z)
     2. English lowercase characters (a through z)
     3. Numerals (0 through 9)
     4. Non-alphabetic characters (such as !, $, #, %)

    For example: p@ssw0rd

  • Make sure that the password you are trying to install does not include any portion of the userID within the password.

    For instance if the user ID is Admin1, your password cannot contain anyportion of the user id such as adm, or dmi, etc...  I beleive its either two or three consecutive characters.

  • Verify you are allowed to change the password. 

    Check the minimum password age, if it has a value greater than zero then you have to wait that many days before being allowed to change it.  This setting is in the default domain policy within gpo's.
