Windows 2008 Server / SBS 2011 Password Requirement
Posted on 2011-04-28
I experienced that during SBS 2011 installation, I had to come up with min. 8 digit/char password with one capital letter.
I just noticed that during Windows 2008 Std installation, it did not have 8 digit/char requirement, but it asked me for one capital letter.
In windows 2003, I don't remember having any requirements for password creation.
Is this requirment (8 digit/chars w/ one capital) a must or can be changed thru some type of policy?
If I can change the policy, I like to just use existing account user names and passwords from Window 2003 server environment.
