All of my accounts, including Administrator, have expired on my 2003 AD. When I attempt to login, I get a message that states I need to change my password. I enter a new password but it always fails with the "your password does not meet the minimum complexity requirements".
I surpass the complexity requirements as stated in the message:
number of passwords remembered: 5
maximum password age: 60 days
minimum password age: 1 days
minimum password length: 9 characters
I created a 20 character password consisting of random numbers, symbols and letters - some in caps, others in lower case. No go. I tried a different combination, still the same error.
I have also tried the following link:
The password will not change and since the accounts are all expired, I cannot sign on. I have local administrator access, but nothing on the domain. Is GP messed up?
Thanks for your help!
