if you need to do this, you'll need to integrate your ESX 3.5 host with Active Directory.

then you can use accounts ONLY in Active Directory which would already have your password policy of complexity.

Are you referring to local ESX host groups? If you have AD, you typically mirror your domain policy.

I meant to say 'users' not groups.
