i have installed fresh windows 2003 enterprise server on my machine. the default user is administrator. But whenever i am trying to create any user i am getting error saying "Windows cannot set password for test because: The password does not meet password policy requests. Check the minimum password length, password Complexity & password history requirements."

please tell me the solution

Thank you

To resolve this issue you will need to turn off windows password complexity check.

To do this access "administrative tools" - "Local Security Policy"
Then in this area access "Account policies" - "Password Policy" and disable the password complexity check.
