How To Fix Error "Password is either short or it does not satisfy the password policy"?

Question: Whenever I try to create a user, I get the following error: Error: 70500060: Password is either short or it does not satisfy the password policy?

Solution:
This error appears when "Password must meet complexity" is enabled on your server. So, in order to avoid this issue you will need to enter complex password at the time of User creation in User Manager :: Add User as well as through Auto signup.

If you do not want to add complex password then disable the password complexity by following the steps given below:

1) Go to Administrative Tools :: Local Security Policies :: Account Policies :: Password Policies.

2) There you will find 2 options "Password Must Meet Complexity Requirements" and "Minimum Password Length".

3) Disable Password must meet complexity requirements and set Minimum password length to 0.

This would help you to avoid adding the complex password while adding the webadmin accounts in HC panel as well as through Auto signup.
