I have a 2008 Domain Controller Freshly Promo'd in a LAB Environment. Single DC, Single server.
I am trying to change the password complexity and I found countless documents explaining the process.
as an example.
I used this policy and disabled the complexity and length requirements and did a gpupdate /force but new users created in the ADUC Applet, still gave an error. After MUCH mucking around I found changing the settings in gpedit.msc fixed my issue.. How can that possibly be?
What am I doing wrong?
