Hi guys,

I have a brand new Domain Controller set up and configured. I didn't modify the local security policies before I created the domain. However, I believe I have modified the default domain policy, and also the default domain controller policy to disable the password complexity.

However, when I create a user in AD, i get the annoying message that the password complexity, etc is still enabled.

What am I missing?

Are you using group Policy Management Console? That tool is very beneficial to see all of the group Policies taht may be applied and what each setting is at a glance so you can quickly troubleshoot those types of issues.

Thanks
