Our group recently implemented 14+ character passwords on our Windows domain in order for us to be compliant with our organizational security directives.
On password change, users are now receiving a password length warning saying:
The Password is longer than older versions of Windows; such as Windows 98 or Windows 95, can use.
Is there a way to disable this warning? Our support team is being inundated with users asking about this.
Our network uses Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7 client operating systems only. The AD domain is at functional level 2008. We have GPOs set so LAN manager hash vales are NOT stored and LAN manager authentication level is NTLMv2 only.
