Hello,

I have a new single domain, single site, single server Wiindows 2008 SP2 network. AD configured default options, DNS, DHCP

I want to configure domain policy password to accept regular passwords, no "strong" passwords that must be changed regularly. My administrator password is now dfr$434 and I would like it to be a simple one

Where to I look for these options that should be the same for all the domain?

Dont forget though that you have the option for fined grained password policies in 2008 ( PSO - Password settings objects ). You should have a look at the link below as it highlights how to go about configuring fine grained password policies for 2008

So fine grained passwords are use so you can have multiple password polices and that was introduce in 2008 once you got to 2008 domain functional level.

If you want everyone just to have the same policy then you can just to to where your password policy is linked at the domain level and change it there

Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Account Policies/Password Policy

disable complexity requirements

thanks
