I have a Default Domain Policy on Server 2003 with a minimum of 8 characters required for passwords and complexity check.
Now I created a new OU and placed myself as the user in that OU and also my computer in that OU. Then I created a new group policy and linked it to that OU. The new GP has the minimum password restriction to 6. I ran gpupdate on the server and my computer and running gpresult does show the policy being applied to the computer.
But when I try to change my password it still requires 8 minimum characters on my password. I also checked the local policy of my computer and that has changed too to 6 minimum characters.
So why am I being still asked for 8?
