We have set up a WIN2000 domain with 2 DC's and 2 2000
Prof. For some reason our DC's will only accept passwords
when they contain both small and capital letters as well
as numbers. If only small and capital letters are used the
DC's will not accept it. If only small letters or capital
letters are used with numbers the DC's will not accept it.
Only it all three types are present in the password it is
Why is that?
