within the Password Policy
PwdMinLength is only effective when pwdCheckQuality attributeType is enabled.
- If this attribute is not present then Password Minimum Length will NOT be enforced.
- If the server is unable to check the length (due to a hashed password or otherwise), the server will, depending on the value of the pwdCheckQuality attribute, either accept the password without checking it ('0' or '1') or refuse it ('2').
