I am trying to enforce complex passwords in native AD environment with Windows 2003 servers.
I cannot get this to work. I cannot seem to get it to enforce even the simplest thing, 8 characters. I have gone into the group policy for the domain and then added a policy called complex password policy. I went into the machine settings and I changed the settings for the password policy in security, and then moved the new policy up above the default group poicy for the domain. I have checked the OU's and made sure the GPO for those are set to "not defined" and still it does not enforce the perameters when I tell it to change a users password?
Do you have any suggestions.
