Default Domain Policy

Hi,

We have DC using 08R2.  this is a new DC, I am trying to create all the username first, and users can change them later.

For now, all the password is the same as the username.  I have "Not Defined" all the password policy in the default domain policy.  But for the shorter username, I am still getting popup saying the requirement is not met.  For example

username:toma
password:toma


Any ideas?  thx

Set a password policy.

Set the length to 3 characters, no complexity.

I think that by defualt 8 characters are needed.
For shorter names you can use username followed by numbers os it is unique for each member with shorter name. For instance:

toma
toma1111

niksi
niksi111

etc..
