I have a user who I did not want to apply the domain password policy (complex passwords, password history, etc.)  I enforced the policy, then realized this user account must not use the policy.  I opened the policy from AD users and computers applied to the domain for the password, went into the security tab, added the user account, and denied all for the policy.  I still cannot change the password for this user because an error appears saying "cannot change the password because the password does not meet the password policy requirements."  What am I missing here?
