How do you disable the password complexity requirements on a W2k8 server that is not part of an Active Directory?

I'd like to find the method that requires the fewest clicks and if there is any way to achieve this straight from the installer?

Start > Run > gpedit.msc

From there: Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Account Policies > Password Policy

I guess you meant Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Account Policies > Password Policy > "Password must meet complexity requirements" –  conny Aug 2 '09 at 23:03
    
You guessed correctly. Glad you managed to find it. –  MDMarra Aug 2 '09 at 23:28
