Hello,

does anybody know if it possible to have a wildcart list of words, which are
not allowed to use the password?
We have strong passwords enabled, but we want to exclude some words like
e.g. winter, summer, love, ....
Is this possible? Doesn't matter if windows 200, 2003 or 2008.

Thanks in advance
Dirk

No. There are third party product that may resolve this but they cost.
