We have an organizational requirement in Active Directory to have a 10 character password that uses Complexity Requirements.  However, we must set new users' initial password as 10 chars WITHOUT complexity (one upper case letter, 9 numbers, for example H123456789).  obviously we hit an error when we attempt to do it this way, saying its not complex enough.  I've been asked to force it anyway, as it would solve some massive unsolvable issues. is there a way to do it?  Thanks this community rocks
