  • domain u/g to 2008, account password question

    Greetings,

    Im upgrading the domain to 2008 soon and ive pretty much got it covered however, all our domain account passwords are created along the lines of a word with a couple of numbers on the end averaging length between 6&7 chars total.

    Am i going to hit any problems when putting the domain up to 2008 level with password complexity? If so is it something that can be disabled or modified to accomodate our password policy?

    Thanks
    James

    you already have a password policy in place, right?

    If all you're doing is upgrading th domain, all existing policies will continue to apply.

      hi tehcamel, thanks for replying.

      I'm assuming you mean whats been set in the default domain security settings? If so its as follows

      Minimum password length 2 characters
      Password must meet complexity requirements Disabled

      Will this definately not be changed?

      thanks
      James

        By default the password complexity is disabled in 2008 but if enabled these are the requirements:
        • Passwords cannot contain the user's account name or parts of the user's full name that exceed two consecutive characters.
        • Passwords must be at least six characters in length.
        • Passwords must contain characters from three of the following four categories:
          • English uppercase characters (A through Z).
          • English lowercase characters (a through z).
          • Base 10 digits (0 through 9).
          • Non-alphabetic characters (for example, !, $, #, %).
