  • When you reset password for other account as Administrator, the password is supposed to be temporary (user should change password on their first logon) so the password rule is more relax.

    Btw, there would be no way to implement "password history" check. For one thing, the previous password hashes are stored in user profile which is not avaliable while you login with another account. For the other, this would mean the domain administrator account would have full access to all the collection of password the users using. Since lots of people use "rotatory password strategy" (when required to change password, choose password from a list commonly used by them), if someone hacked in the domain it'll cause serious security implication. So I think they wouldn't implement it even if they're requested to.
