Runtime error "-214721900 (8004oe14)

I have loaded a database on my server and setup the clinets on 5 windows xp pc's. The server is running windows server 2003. The server is new  and nosettings were changed from the default. I have the database working fine and can get the client computers loging in with the admin password but when i try to add a new  user i get a error
"Runtime error '-214721900 (8004oe14)': password validation failed. The password does not meet windows policy requirements it is too short."
I have used a password from 3 to 16 numbers and letters but still fails. Can anyone help me with this or has any one had this problem before. Thank you.

You may find the error message is actually different after you tried passwords of 8 or more chars.
