Azure AD Connect Install Error - Password Policy Requirements

    Question

  • Hi, I was wondering if anyone has encountered the error below while installing the Azure AD Connect.

    The installation goes to the point when it is creating the AD sync account, then it fails with an error that the password doesn't meet password requirements.

    [ERROR] Caught exception while creating synchronization account.
    Exception Data (Raw): System.DirectoryServices.AccountManagement.PasswordException: The password does not meet the password policy requirements. Check the minimum password length, password complexity and password history requirements. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800708C5) ---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: The password does not meet the password policy requirements. Check the minimum password length, password complexity and password history requirements. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800708C5)

    Thanks for any advice.
