I am attempting to import a group of users using ldifde and everytime I do it I get the following error.


Connecting to "TexasRanger.NORRIS.ORG"
Logging in as current suer using SSPI
Importing directory from file "goodusers.ldf"
Loading entries1: CN=user 2,OU=Good guys,DC=NORRIS,DC=ORGAdd error on entry starting on line 1: Unwilling To Perform
The server side error is: 0x52d Unable to update the password. The value provided for the new password does not meet the length, complexity, or history requirements of the domain.
The extended server error is:
0000052D: SVCErr: DSID-031A11E5, problem 5003 (WILL_NOT_PERFORM), data 0
0 entries modified successfully.
An error has occurred in the program
No log files were written. In order to generate a log file, please
specify the log file path via the -j option.

I have set the domain policy to not require anything, no complexity requirements, no password length or history requirements, but still get this error.


I exported the users using the following command.

Ldifde f goodusers.ldf s nstd-admin d "OU=Good guys, dc=norris,dc=org" -p subtree -r
"(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=User)(givenname=*))" -o "badPasswordTime,badPwdCount,lastLogoff,lastLogon,logonCount,
memberOf,objectGUID,objectSid,primaryGroupID,pwdLastSet,sAMAccountType"
