Radius MAC auth complexity

Hi all,

Just wondering if anybody knows a good third party solution or program which would allow me to add a MAC address into active directory with the Meets Password Complexity option enabled.

The reason why is because my domain gets audited if the Meets Password Complexity option is disabled it will not pass and unfortunately the passwords for the MAC addresses have to be either all lower case or uppercase.

I know there are other Radius solutions out there such as Free Radius, which might be another way around this but I don't have the time to fiddle around with it.

Is there a third party option for Microsoft server 2003 or another directory type of application I should look into to host the MAC addresses.

Thanks for the responses

Re: Radius MAC auth complexity

not the answer, but W2K8 does allow for multiple password complexity policies, and makes this issue an easy resolve...

but it would be nice if there was something on W2K3 srvr that could do it!!!
