I really hope you're venting at Microsoft who set the standard and
which Samba, for FREE, is simply following. It's the exact same setup
as a Windows Server install. You can't turn off the complexity
requirements there before you setup the Admin account either.

Seriously dude. It works just like it does in Windows and clearly you
want it just like Windows or you wouldn't be running an AD provision.

Seems like a lot of venting and gnashing of teeth for an extra couple
of minutes of work. [Not to mention a poke in the Samba Devs' eyes
about what you have not paid a penny for.]
