I am running a test win 2003 domain. I have diabled all domain policies but
when i go to add a user, it still tells me that the password has not met the
requirements.

What do I have to do to change this?

Edit the Default Domain Policy and navigate to:

Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Account
Policies/Password Policy

Then make the following changes (the password legnth one if optional but I
included it in case you wanted no restrictions at all):

Disable Password must meet complexity requirements
minimum password legnth - 0

Then go to the command line and type:

gpupdate /target:computer /force

Now you should be set.

Please let me know if you'd like me to explain anything in further detail.

The original post of this was from 2005, the last one was from 2010, you need to start a new post with your issue.

And yes, "computer" is your computer name.
