Windows Server 2003 - GPO - User account with No password

Last Modified: 2016-10-02
Hi there,

I have a client that needs to have a user account to have NO password.

In Windows Settings / Security Settings / Account Policies / Password must meet complexity requirements = Disabled.

No other OU has a GPO enforcing Password complexity requirements.

I still cannot reset the password nothing.
