Hello all, I'm having a problem in a Windows Server/Domain environment where I am unable to assign password due to not meeting complexity requirements. Under any other circumstances this would not be a problem however, the issue is not with needing complex passwords, the issue is I cannot find this option enabled in ANY GPO.
I have searched ALL GPO's within scope as well as without scope, I've run multiple RSoP's on multiple users where the resultant reveals no inherited GPO's/or if inherited, no password complexity requirements. I've taken all GPO's out of scope, I've rebooted the servers, I've waited days to be sure that AD latency is compensated for and still have not found out where this password complexity is being generated/inherited from. I'm aware that SMB servers are not the pedigree of Windows servers and would I have my way they would all be Linux/Unix/Novell, but that is not the case. Please, if anyone knows what I'm missing, or where this setting can be coming from let me know. It's not coming from Group Policy, I have established that.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, I'm not concerned so much with turning it off so much as figuring out where it's coming from since I don't want that source of setting to override all my GPO settings on the domain.
