Error importing users with LDIFde

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,

Any help?

Can you use the command with the -j option and genereate a log file so we can see the error?

"An error has occurred in the program

Passwords cannot contain the users account name or parts of the users full name that exceed two consecutive characters.
Passwords must be at least six characters in length.
Passwords must contain characters from three of the following four categories:
English uppercase characters (A through Z).
English lowercase characters (a through z).
Base 10 digits (0 through 9).
Non-alphabetic characters (for example, !, $, #, %).
