Does that have to be a blank password? What would you need that for?

Cheers,

According the post above I unserstand that you want some users to
logon with balnk passwords ?? is this you are looking for ?

If you have windows 2008 server then,this can be achieved using the
“Granular Password Settings” or “Fine-Grained Password Policy“ in
Windows 2008.

Please see the link

Hello MSH,

Without 2008/2008 R2 as OS version, no. Password policy has to be defined
on domain level for all users in prior OS version.

With 2008 you can use fine grained password policy where you can use OU based
additional configurations.

If the problem is that you have a user who does not want to log on you can
use this:

Of course, whether that is secure enough is a matter for you,

Hi msh
First let me advise you that having systems with no password request is not
a very good idea, accounts with no password is equally bad from security
perspective. However there're scenarios where this doesn't make any
difference, if this is your case or if you don't care about security:

- To change your domain policy password you need to edit the GPO (Group
Policy) at domain level, this apply to 2000 and latter OS. Note that all
domain users will be affected by this change next time that they're prompted
to change the password or when they attempt to change it manually. The
policy setting is under "Default Domain Policy" but is possible to have
different settings in a different policy at the same location in a policy
with a lower link order than the "Default Domain Policy". The settings are
configurable under:
"Computer Configuration/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Account
Policies/Password Policy". The setting "Minimum password length" is the one
that defines the Minimum size of the password and can be set to 0.

- Fine grained passwords is a new feature to Windows 2008 and later that
allows you to define multiple password policies within a single domain.

However If your question is only regarding at autologon, I mean, you want to
logon without having to write your password in the login screen you may have
a look at this

I hope that the information above helps you.
Have a Nice day.
