GP - Complex password policy is not working.


I have enabled "Password must meet complexity requirements" on a 2008R2 domain with Windows 7 clients.

I can see that the policy is set by running rsop.msc on the client and the Local Group Policy Editor.

But I when I change my password, it does not it require it to be complex.

The password I tested was "changeme".

I would start with group policy modeling to determine if a competing GPO is winning or if the GPO you edited is being denied.  It is a good tool to figure out what your GPOs are actually doing.
