Maybe its the local system having requirements and not IPA?

In my secure logs I see pam is quering first locally and then the sss 
daemon....maybe its failing you on the default rh setup of the OS?

Subject: [Freeipa-users] Password requirements too stringent

Hey all;

I'm running IPA internally to control access to our cloud environment.

I must admit, I do not understand the password requirements. I have had them 
set to the defaults. I read this:
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Identity_Management_Guide/user-pwdpolicy.html

I have the minimum character classes set to 0. When people use SSH to change 
their passwords, they get "Based on a dictionary word" for passwords that have 
nothing to do with dictionary words.

I can't find anywhere in the documentation a break down of what makes an 
unacceptable versus acceptable password.

Can anyone help me figure out what to tell my users? I think people would get a 
lot less frustrated if they knew why "C679V375" was "too simple" when the 
password policy has 0 required classes.
