Chang AD password to not meet complexity?
Posted on 2007-04-03
I need to change a password for a user account in a Server 2003 domain. The problem is I need to set the password to something that does not meet the complexity requirements imposed on the domain. I tried using an ADSI script with objUser.SetPassword(), but it still checks the complexity and subsequently fails.
I know I can disable the complexity across the whole domain, but that's like blowing up your house to kill a cockroach inside.
Is there any way to change an AD password on a user account to something that does not meet the complexity requirements? If so, how?
