NT4 password migration to WIN 2003

    I understand the GPO and the settings that need to be made to support non
    complex passwords, however changing those settings in our test system does
    not change the effective policy in the test domain. What am I missing?

    Thanks

    Hi Patrik,

    Thanks for posting!

    Based on the description, to make me clear, please help me know the
    following information on your side.

    1. If the GPO what you mentioned is "password must meet complexity
    requirements" in Windows 2003 DC?

    2. How did you "changing those settings" but it does not change the
    effective policy in the test domain?

    3. Do you specific that you notice "User should change the password at the
    next logon" option checked after the user migration? If so, it is a feather
    by design, we cannot change them through GPO and we may use vbsript to
    uncheck them.

    If there is anything that is unclear, please feel free to let me know.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Jason Tan

    Jason,
    The current GPO on the target 2003 system requires high security passwords.
    I have followed the procedures outlined in changing the GPO policies to allow
    less secure passwords (ie. NT4). However making those changes and applying
    the GPO the new settings do not take effect (ie. unable to change password to
    less secure). My assumption is there is a process that must be executed to
    apply new setting of GPO.

    Thanks
