  • Well, are the PCs member of the domain? If not, they are not part of the password policy. Is there more than one domain controller, and if so, do they replicate properly with each other?

    Is the new password at least 6 characters long? Did you try to refresh the Group Policy Settings on the client with the command

    gpupdate /force

    Are there any error messages in event log on the client?

  • Hi Samer.ccst,

    Thanks for your post.

    Also add to Olaf, please also check whether you meet the password policy requirement. The enforce password history, maximum password age and minimum passworad age are all set to NO Defined. In fact they all have default settings. For example minimum passworad age is 1 day.  So do you changed the password in the last 24 hours? You could click the settings for more detail information.

    Best Regards,

    Mary Dong
