Perhaps, though it really doesn't make sense to have complexity req
before you tell it, it's a Windows style AD domain - hence that would
be why it happens when you provision the domain.

[I've never tried to set it prior to provisioning the domain, so I'm
not at all sure it's really a bug - though I'd agree cosmetically it's
a little odd.]

But _really,_ it's not that hard to meet the complexity req - especially
for your master Admin account.

Then once you get it set, and you'd _really_ *like* a vulnerable admin
password you can always turn off the req and then change it back. ;)

GR> Something is turning the complexity back on during the provision. BUG
