Admin Password Requirements not accepting a seemingly acceptable password RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can someone please tell me how:
    "The Slow (Lazy) Fox Can't Get In."

    could possibly be a password that is not accepted?  I mean it’s 34 characters?  It conforms to the stated requirements.  >3 CAPS, >3 lower, >3 [^A-Z,a-z,0-9] ?

    Is space not a valid character in the password?  Since I can create a user with a password without spaces...  The documentation does not specifically exclude spaces.


    If this is a bug, how do I file a bug report, if not, can the documentation be updated?

  • It apprears that the portal testbox has an issue. Thanks for reporting this.

    You can still create the password through TSQL - CREATE/ALTER LOGIN. Notice that you need to escaoe the single tick.



    LOGIN login WITH PASSWORD='The Slow (Lazy) Fox Can''t Get In.'
