Re: Windows Server 2008 Password Complexity Requirements

Hello I_A_H,

Mimimum requirements are:
- 7 characters
- Passwords cannot contain the user's account name or parts of the user's
full name that exceed two consecutive characters
- Passwords must contain characters from three of the following four categories:
1.English uppercase characters (A through Z).
2.English lowercase characters (a through z).
3.Base 10 digits (0 through 9).
4.Non-alphabetic characters (for example, !, $, #, %).

So something like: Passw)r

Best regards

Make sure that the new password you are setting satisfies the complexity
requirements (as per
