Password Complexity Policy - SQL Server 2005
Posted on 2006-11-17
I'm trying to create logins in SQL Server 2005 with no passwords.
"exec sp_addlogin <LOGIN_NAME>"
"Password validation failed. The pass does meet Windows policy requirements because it is not complex enough"
I'm running this on an older version of Windows 2003 Server so SQL Server should not be refering to the OS for a password policy; but even so, the Windows password policy is set to the minimum (0 characters). Furtermore, I am executing this command in a Mixed Mode login with "CHECK_POLICY" turned off.
Any thoughts on why a password policy is still being enforced?
