Hi Gregor,

there are several places where passwords exist, such as passwords for admin accounts or user database accounts. What passwords exactly do you refer to?

Basically there are a couple of things checked, such as a minimum length, but we do not have a configurable password policy such as number of last passwords or lock out of accounts. If we are talking about admin accounts it is probably an idea to maintain the admin users within an external directory, such as active directory. By doing so MWG will have the same password policy that already exists for your domain users, since the domain controller has to validate an administrators password.

Best,

Andre

Hi Andre,

sorry for late reply and also thank you. I thought so... The problem is that one of our customer does not want to connect MWG to AD or some LDAP and passwored policy can not be enforced.
