Why such an ancient version?
You should consider upgrading to e.g. the Alpha 16 release.

For Alpha 12, use the following to see the password complexity settings:
net pwsettings show
Use the following to see how to change these options:
net pwsettings --help set
e.g. to change the minimum password length:
net pwsettings set --min-pwd-length=6
With later versions of Samba you'd use the "samba-tool" command
instead of "net".
