Symptoms

Task to change user's password fails with error:

Your password is not complex enough. According to the server policy, the minimal password strength is Strong. To improve the password strength, use numbers, upper and lower-case characters, and special characters like !,@,#,$,%,^,&,*,?,_,~

Cause

Incorrect password strength policy was setup.

Resolution

Do NOT cancel the task to avoid inconsistency of PPA databases.

On the management node perform the following shell command instead:

# /usr/local/psa/bin/server_pref -u -min_password_strength very_weak
