I have a AD controller, Windows Server 2003 R2, I have a Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Edition w/Exchange 2010 installed.  All fresh installs.  I cannot disable password complexity requirements. I've changed the Default Domain Policys.  I've checked all local policies.

I can change passwords in Active Directory Users and Computer without complexity requirements.  However users cannot change their passwords via OWA without it stating its not complex enough.

I've done gpupdate /force , i've rebooted both machines..  I'm at a loss here.

I've checked in every imagineable spot in the GPO's and it shows Disabled.

Ok, doesn't matter what password I try to change it to, it always says it doesn't meet the required complexity.

I just tried changing it to:

Ese5d43f2@!!!

I think this may be related to OWA only and not the GPO/Domain Policies/Etc

Any ideas

Have you restarted the exchange server?

Yes, and I've also set the minimum age to 0 from 1 in the GPO.  I'm rebooting once more.

The fix was changing it from 1 to 0 for Minimum Age in the GPO.  Then gpupdate /force.... THEN rebooting.  All solved now.
