  • If this is the first domain controller in the domain, then the local Administrator account on this computer must have a password that meets the complexity requirements. The fix is to change the password for the local administrator user on the computer.

  • Hi,

    You have to change the current administrator password with more complexity with alpha numerical and special characters in it.

    Thanks

  • If this is your first Domain controller you are going to promote, Please use Password Complexity for Administrator account. Your local administrator account also...

    Use LowerCase/Upper case letters, Numbers, Symbols together for Admin password

    No. Use plain ASCII, easy to remember words. But use a looooong password, and make sure you use a combination of words that nobody would ever use :-)

  • As mentioned above, the local admin account password does not meet the minimum password requirements so you should fix that first. For the list of the requirements, you can check on them here: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/80fbdb20-b3da-4df6-a56a-52cbd298d54f/unable-to-complete-dcpromo-password-does-not-meet-complexity?forum=winserversetup

  • How do I change the password I tried many complex passwords and did not work?
    Tuesday, March 20, 2018 3:38 AM
  • Hi,

    Complexity requirements:

    Must be at least 6 characters in length (this is overwritten by the minimum password length if the minimum password length is more than 6. ) It must contain at least one character from three of the following four categories: English upper case (A to Z), English lowercase (a through z) A numerical digit (0 through 9), non alphabetical characters such as $ % #)

    Best Regards,

    William

  • Hi,

    Seems very strange.

    As a backup method, I would suggest you disable group policy setting "Password must meet complexity requirements", then try to prompt the server as DC again.
