Does anyone have any good tools out there for changing the default
complexity requirements for AD domains? My customer wants the Password
policies to match but doesn't like AD's default set.

I have seen reference to writing your own passfilt.dll, but I imagine
there are good tools to use out there to do this without going too deep.

What have folks used in the past?

hummm if just password policy, you can just use the Group Policy Management Console. You should be able to do what you need to do and it's simple to use. You can download it from http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/gpmc/default.mspx

btw, keep in mind that there's only one pasword policy per domain, so not sure "policies" is the word you want to use.
