password complexity 2012 r2

    Question

  • I'm hoping I am just overlooking a simple solution here! I am using two uppercase letters, five numbers, one symbol, three lowercase letters, and one symbol for a password in Windows Server 2012 r2 but I get an error message stating it "must be longer or more complex". I can't figure out what this really means as my password clearly fits the password complexity rules, what am I doing wrong? Thanks, Steve
