Cannot deny user from domain password policy
Posted on 2004-03-25
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?
