my computer is part of a domain network and i have an administrative account
when i scan the computer with the MBSA tool for security it scans the whole computer and can't scan the administrator password.
for instance if i put a weak admin pass it should report to me : " Administrator password : Password weak"
but instead it says : "Administrator password : access denied"
why the MBSA can't check if the admin pass is weak or complex?
oh and i'm not an admin i just started to learn for MCSA (new student)
i tried to ask this question on OS - XP part but i didn't get the answer i wanted
thank you for helping me

my os : win xp pro
