I normally dont have any problems creating mailboxes, this one is a mailbox that is supposed to be set up as a shared mailbox for a group, so there's no user tied to it directly in AD. Every time I try to create it I get the below error. It says there's a problem with the password but I've tried making some complex passwords (8-10 characters, symbols, numbers, capitals, etc) and I know that it is in compliance with the rules of the domain for passwords.

Error:
Active Directory operation failed on DC01.ccc.local. This error is not retriable. Additional information: Unable to update the password. The value provided for the new password does not meet the length, complexity, or history requirements of the domain.
Active directory response: 0000052D: SvcErr: DSID-031A0FC0, problem 5003 (WILL_NOT_PERFORM), data 0


The server cannot handle directory requests.

Try creating the account in ADUC, then just mail enabling it.
