Task 'Set VPS Administrator password' fails in POA with the following diagnostics:

Task ID 389379
Task name Set VPS 101 Administrator password
Task description Task that set VPS 101 Administrator password
Queue name vps_operations_101
Method name taskSetPasswd
Execution status Failed
Start not earlier than Jun-24-2010 09:42
Finished Jun-24-2010 09:42
Output 1025 : Can't modify Container parameters :
ERROR:Cannot set password in CT 1201 for user Administrator
ERROR:The password does not meet the password policy requirements. Check the minimum password length, password complexity and password history requirements.

Problem is actual for containers based on Windows Server 2008.

This task may be a part of VPS creation task set, so VPS will not be fully created.


The reason of problem is too weak password which POA is trying to set as Administrator password in a container. Windows Server 2008 has strict password policy requirements.


See Knowledge Base article Unable to set administrator password for a PVC container due to policy requirements for resolution.
