Password must meet complexity requirements

    Question

  • Hi,

    In GP I disable [Password must meet complexity requirements] and apply this policy to my workstation (and i check it - all ok), but i still can't change the password on workstation.

    What wrong?

    Thanks.

  • Hi sekii,

    Please also run gpresult on affected user computer with elavated command promt wich help you to verify what GPO is applied to the computer/user.

    Check the report whether password GPO is applied ?was it denied? If it didn’t apply or got denied, check the Event Log for more information about why the GPO didn’t apply or was denied.

    Besides, have you check for a workstation about Local security policy ?

    Best Regards,

  • I already change default domain policy (disabled complexity requirements).

    And one more: I can set simply password in ADUC.
