Password complexity policies for domain aren't working

I want to remove the password complexity rules for my domain. I've changed the default options in the domain group policy to disabled, but I still get a warning message about password complexity when I try to change a password. Where else do I need to change this?

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi JeffreyWest,


Have you allowed the enought time for the changes to effect the machines (roughtly around 90 minutes)?

Otherwise you can use the following commands on the pcs for a command prompt immediately:
Xp type: gpupdate
2000 pro: secedit /refreshpolicy machine_policy

Fatal_Exception,


It may be coffee time for you but it's a night cap for me.
I guess why I read your comment without noticing the typo ;-)

Well, the harbour is all of 20 metres away from my windows and it's a chilly 18C at night.

Hmmm, sure beats the London rain and heavy traffic.

Hard life, I know ;-)
