Windows 7: Windows 7 Password issue on domain

Windows 7 Password issue on domain

I have a windows server 2003 with a domain set up and the password security settings for it set up for things like 7 chars, Capital letter, non-capital letter etc, but it seems the Windows 7 users can't sucessfully change a password to meet the requirements.

When they change it and the password should be allowed it says that it doesn't meet the correct settings? Is local group policy overriding this on the PCs?

How can I fix this?

Hello Jase,

I'm not sure about on a domain, but you might also check security policy to see if it may be enabled, and to see if the listed requirements are all being met if you wanted to keep it enabled.

Password must meet Complexity Requirements - Enable

Hope this may help some, :)
