i am trying to setup a two way trust with another forest (2003 to 2008) but everytime i try to establish the trust i get a message indicating "the trust password is not a strong password" and it goes back to password entry dialog.

The domain policies are not complex and i have tried to use a really strong password but still keep getting the same message.

Any ideas anyone...
