Lookup Password

The “Password” class of Lookup settings allows the definition of what comprises a valid user password. A number of password rules can be configured to match the local policies. These rules will be used to validate the password users can set on their local NetYCE account. They have no bearing on the password used when the accounts are managed by Ldap or Active Directory.

The password settings are available for 'manager' level NetYCE users using the Admin - Lookup menu under the 'Password' class.
