Question: Why wouldn't password complexity prompts shell when using PuTTy?

When user resets the password while doing ssh into the server, the password complexity requirement will prompt.

When user reset password while login into the server via PuTTY directly, the password complexity requirement will not prompt.

Answer: This issue relates to native Putty which is beyond Centrify's control to address it, Putty does not notify on the screen when forced password reset failed due to password complexity requirement enforced by GPO.
