When Windows Server requires a user to change their password, it would be nice if the user is informed of the password complexity requirements. We have set our requirements to be a bit higher (9 char min + standard Windows Password Complexity) than the defaults (Windows Password Complexity).

The main message would be if the standard Windows Password Complexity was turned on. This means that the password must be at least 6 chars long, and have at least three of the following:
* 1 upper
* 1 lower
* 1 number
* 1 special char

Recently, we have had several support issues with clients not being able to log into our system after they change their password. Once we manually set the password for them (to a very secure/nasty password), they always are able to log into our system again.
