1. Start > Administrative Tools > Domain Security Policy2. Security Settings > Account Policies > Password Policy.3. Right-click on Minimum password length in the right pane. Click Properties from the context menu.4. Do not remove the check from the Define this policy setting checkbox! Enter a new minimum password length. Entering a Zero (0) will remove the password requirement. Click the OK button.5. Double-click on Passwords must meet complexity requirements in the right pane.6. Do not remove the check from the Define this policy setting checkbox! Select the Disabled option.(This will allow simpler passwords.) Click the OK button.7.
