Solved

Password validation failed. The password does not meet Windows policy requirements because it is not complex enough.

without going into the server, with TSQL is it possible to check the password policy?

I am creating like
CREATE LOGIN jimw WITH PASSWORD='JimWengerTesting-18:00' and still says it is not complex enough.. any thoughts on that?

thanks
