    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
