Password length and complexity are two different policies, password complexity also includes the 6 char minimum flag, If I were you I would set the complexity policy first then the length policy and narrow it down that way, although it looks to me if you are getting the message that it failed complexity then it is not the length of the password that you are having the problem with as long as it is more than 6 char. In any event I would try one then the other :)

Subject: AD Password complexity - passwords too long?

Hello list,

We have password complexities set on our domain; minimum password length is 8 and all XP users and Windows 2003 servers.

I can set my password to 9-10 characters, but if I try to set it for 10+ characters, they get the error message that they do not meet the complexity requirements.

I have searched Microsoft documentation, and find minimum length requirements. I think I saw something about 28 characters, and even 127 characters.

Does anyone know if there is a max password length?

We would like to keep the minimum 8 characters, and the maximum varied at the users discretion. Can this be done?

Thanks
