Implement Complex Passwords


We are trying to determine what the impact of changing the password parameters so that the SAP ECC 6.0 version will require complex passwords. The settings we would like to change are:

1. login/min_password_digits

2. login/min_password_letters

3. login/min_password_lowercase

4. login/min_password_specials

5. login/min_password_uppercase

Basically, we are wondering what will happen to users whose passwords are not "complex". Will their existing passwords be "rejected", meaning they will be forced to create complex passwords right away? Will their passwords expire and have to be reset manually by security? Or, will they be forced to use complex passwords on their next, scheduled or user selected password change?
