Active directory 2003 domain security policy fault?
Posted on 2007-10-15
I have a test (virtual environment) environment based of 1 domain, which enatisl one DC and a couple of clients. When i log onto the network with a client a get some sticky key problems when entering the password for the client. I know this is a result of virtual server. However, I want to disable the client (domain user) from having to eneter a password, ie. put in his user name and press enter.
I can't appear to disable the domain 'enhanced password policy, 8 characters upper\lower case etc. I'm changing the policy at the domain OU, I thought this was allowed, but when I deselect all of the password options both within the computer and user policy, and then I try a nd change the user password to 'password' from within Ad users and computers, it tells me that the new password does not meet the policy requirements. Is it simply that I can't do what I'm trying to do? Ideally I'd like to have no password what so ever?
