Unable to change user passwords
Posted on 2006-06-13
I am using Windows Server 2003 Standard. Lately, whenever I have to change a user password, no matter what I try, it comes back and tells me the password I have entered does not meet the necessary requirements. I have several GPO's and have eliminated any password requirements from all of them, including the Default Domain Policy. The policies are also not linked nor being enforced. I still cannot change the password for an existing user and I cannot create a new user ID and password in existing OU's. I'm in the process of implementing tighter password controls and my users routinely lock themselves out.
Anyone have any ideas on what's going on?
