comment How do I disable or modify pam's password requirements?
@djeikyb It does not change the requirement, but it bypasses it. When you run passwd as root, it will ignore the password policies. If you just need to set it once and forget it, then that will work. If you are trying to set it so each user can freely change their passwords, then you need another solution.

comment VMWare Player mouse becomes erratic
When you were checking the mouse drivers on the guest, was the mouse listed as VMware pointing device? I've seen VMware Guest revert to PS/2 or HID mice, which means the mouse isn't using the drivers from VMware tools.

comment How to set printer permissions using PowerShell / some other script?
Is this in a domain or a workgroup? Also, will you set the permissions for groups, users, or both?
