I'm trying to setup an account on a windows 7 machine that has no password. However there are complexity requirements getting in the way.
It might be of interest that this computer is connected to a network that uses a domain, but the user account in question is not registered on the domain, but on the local machine, and I have administrative access.
I was able to disable this policy on a similar computer on the same network by going to Start -> Run -> secpol.msc, navigating to Account Policies -> Password Policy -> Password must meet complexity requirements and disabling the option. However on this computer those options are grayed out and I can't figure out how to change them. Nor does there seem to be another instance within my field of google queries that had a similar predicament.
Can anyone point me to how to enable these radio buttons so I can disable this option?
Thanks in advance.
Edit in responses to comments:
- Both computers in question are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64-Bit OS's
- The attempts to change this password policy occurred on the same day
- They are on the same domain and in the same OU as they have the the given network addresses: LDAP://CN=WMSBUILD,CN=Computers,DC=aquaveo,DC=local LDAP://CN=WMSROBOT,CN=Computers,DC=aquaveo,DC=local
