    Clean Win2003 with IIS.

    Install fails: Unable to reconfigure compinent Plesk: The password does not meet the policy requirements. Check the minimum password length, complexity and history requirements.

    What are the requirements?

    Thanks,
    Z.

    You set the requirements in a group policy, so check your "account policy" :)

    Clean W2003 install comes with a restricted password policy and I assumed that PLESK would install on a 'clean' W2003. Probably when the install wants to create user accounts the system rejects them because of the policy. Changing the password policy after the error message didn't help (it's a stand alone server btw)
    Uninstall takes like 4 hours. :(

    So I wait, then reset the pasword policy to zero and try again.
    I just can't seem to find the 'group policy ' thingy? :D

    Set the min. password legnth 0
    max. password age: 0
    password history: 0
    disabled complexity requirements

    Is this on the Windows 2003 Server editions? I have never had any problems installing on Web Edition relating to policies.

    I installed on SBS2003 (internal development) and recieved the same error. I have reduced the complexity in the local policy.

    Just as a security note, maybe Plesk should make the passwords conform to a minimum level of complexity that the IT industry is going to (read as follow Microsoft's default).
