Possible password policy issue or you don't know the policy

You stated you are an AD newbie, so I think you don't know your domain password policy. Is password complexity enabled? If so, then your password must include 3 out of 4 of the following: a lowercase letter, an uppercase letter, a numeric, and/or a non-alphanumeric character ($%#@*&, etc.) Thus, a simple password like "Baseball" doesn't work, but "Bas3bal!" does, if pw complexity is enabled.

Also, what is the minimum length? 6 is usually the norm, but I have seen 8 and 10 enabled as well.

You must check the password policy, which can be found within the Domain Policy GPO. I would ask someone a bit more knowledgable in the subject to assist you.

Lastly, you may want to check this out, the error message is similar:;en-us;297315

Good luck :grin:
