Students unable to change passwords
We have just started the new term and dozens of pupils have forgotten their passwords. We reset them and ask them to change it next time they logon. They do this via ctrl+Alt+Delete.
However for some of the pupils it comes up with the error -
"Your password must be at least 5 characters, cannot repeat any of your previous 0 passwords and must be at least 1 days old. Please type a different password. Type a password which meets both these requirements in both text boxes"
When they follow these requirements it still doesn't work with all types of words.
We have recently installed a 2008 R2 domain controller, could this have something to do with it?
Any help appreciated.

Your users need to follow these guidelines...

English uppercase characters (A through Z);
English lowercase characters (a through z);
Numerals (0 through 9);
Non-alphabetic characters (such as !, $, #, %)

or if you don't actually need that level of security, change it through group policy to something more approriate for 12 year old children.
