I have a Windows Server 2012 R2 that is my domain controller. I want to disable the password complexity rule for a few users only. I have created a group (called Formation) in AD to identify these domain users. I have defined a GPO in an OU to disable the password complexity rule, and I have assigned my new group to this GPO.
I was hoping this would work, but when I go (on the same server) to manage the users in AD, I try to initialyze the password, but I still get the error message saying the password complexity rule was not followed.
I tried to run gpupdate /force but no success... What else should I look for to fix this?
The password policy is a computer config and I want to apply this to users, is this part of the problem?
