When trying to create a password longer than 16 chars on my Windows 2012 server, it is refused due to the password being to long. I have tried looking for a GPO called "Maximum Password Length" - which i cannot find. The problem might be in: PwdFilt or PCNSFLT. Screenshot of regedit where i Also looked.1
The problem is we need 36 char passwords on the SQL 2014 server we are installing to do encryption.
