Symantec Encryption Management Server administrator accounts do not have password complexity requirements by default in releases prior to 3.4.2.
This is by design.
Upgrade to Encryption Management Server release 3.4.2 or above because starting with release 3.4.2, password complexity is enabled by default. Please see article TECH250466 for further details.
Alternatively, in releases prior to 3.4.2, use the following steps to enforce password complexity:
cp /etc/ovid/omf.properties /etc/ovid/omf.properties.bak
pgpsysconf --restart tomcat
For assistance modifying this setting, please contact Symantec Technical Support.
After taking these steps, a new passphrase for an administrator must meet all of the following requirements:
Note that in release 3.4.2 and above, administrator password settings are configured in the file /etc/ovid/prefs.xml rather than /etc/ovid/omf.properties.
