I am using SQL Server 2005.

Some of my users have changed their password, and then tried to turn around and change it again fairly quickly.  Don't ask me why -- users will be users!

When they do, the error "The password for the user is too recent to change" is produced.

What is too recent??  Can I change the timeframe for this error?  Where?

I read through the material you pointed me to, and it would appear that a way around this would be to turn Check_Policy off, then change the password, then turn Check_Policy back on, but this would unfortunately also allow bypassing of all password rules, which my company will not allow.

I don't know if I want to change the "too recent" parameter, yet.  But, I need to know how I find out what it is, so at a minimum, I can explain it to the user.  Depending on user pressure, if it is, say, 3 days, then I might want to change it to 1 hour or some shorter period.
