Hi

For some reason my group policy is stopping the clients within ad from changing their passwords.  It doesnt matter how complex you create the password it fails to change.

I have now removed all of the setting in the default domain policy and you still cannot change the password.  I have also gone into my other policies to make sure their are no conflicting entries and all seems fine.

Ideas?

Thanks

No there isnt.

The error message is that the password does not meet complexity length etc etc

Thanks for that.  For some reason the domain controllers local settings were getting in the way.
