Password policy setting? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My kids have a computer with an account called "Kids" with no password. 

    I can see in the help reference to a password policy with choices between Normal, Simple and Complex.  However I cannot find this setting in the Server Console.

  • Password Policy was not implemented for Beta. It will be available for RTM.

  • You can work around this by creating the user manually in users/groups, add it to the windows home server users group and you can manage it in the hs console.

  • I take it that that means the RC aswell ?

    As I can set the password strength in settings, but the user password field will only accept strong passwords

     

    Thanks

  • Thanks for that,

      I just figured it out - so that would mean that when you set up a user - they keep the password policy forever as that user and any new users get the policy at the time

     

    Thanks again

      :-)

  • If you enable remote access for a user account, that user will need to have a strong password irrespective of the policy, for security reasons.
