my client want to disable password complexity so that users cannot have any hassle in setting their passwords
still it gets the password more unsecured . It’s an client request .
Start – Group Policy management
Right Click on Default Domain Policy – Click Edit
Computer Configuration – Policies – Windows Settings – Security Settings – Password Policy – Disable the “Password Must meet Complexity Requirements”
Now mailbox can have Passwords without complexity.
I have disabled the password complexity in AD, however when i try to change the password from OWA still asks to set complex password.
Thanks in advance
Run gpupdate /force on exchange servers. or it may take time to apply automaticallly
I I have disabled the password complexity in AD also run gpupdate /force but OWA still ask to set complex password.
U changed in group policy right ?

i am facing some what similar problem in exchange 2013.i selected “require password change on next logon” for newly created or added users.but while login on owa, it is prompting to change password but it is not happening.getting error like “the username or password you entered is not correct…”,
after login using old password and tried to change password then getting the minimum password requirement error even i disabled the settings in GROUP POLICY as u mentioned…can please look into this
gpupdate /force on all relevant machines
SAME. I am setting up a TEST DC in our lab with 2008R2 and Exchange 2013 to replace a 2003 SBS server.
I have changed the GROUP POLICY for the entire Domain to not require complex passwords. EXCHANGE 2013 is running on the same server as the DC (one computer – as it is just used as a lab domain controller).
I then did the gpupdate /force and even RUN AS ADMIN.
Logged in as myself to the OWA site, and went to change password.
I am getting YOUR PASSWORD DOES NOT MEET COMPLEXITY REQUIREMENTS.
WHAT GIVES? How do I disable this, so that when I setup a new user for the domain, they can change their PW from within OWA?
check domain controller policy. Password complexity entry
