Am I missing it? I can't seem to find the page to change the minimum password requirements in UC on a Business Edition. Can someone point me in the right direction.

Hi Steve,

Here is the related info;

Specifying Password, Logon, and Lockout Policies by Using Authentication Rules

In Cisco Unity Connection, authentication rules govern user passwords and account lockouts for all user accounts. You use authentication rules to secure how users access Connection by phone, and how users access Cisco Unity Connection Administration and the Cisco Personal Communications Assistant (PCA).

For example, an authentication rule determines:

•The number of failed logon attempts that are allowed before an account is locked

•The number of minutes an account remains locked before it is reset

•Whether a locked account must be unlocked manually by an administrator

•The minimum length allowed for passwords

•The number of days before a password expires

Creating and Modifying Authentication Rules, and Assigning Rules to Users

Authentication rules are specified on the System Settings > Authentication Rules page in Connection Administration.

Hope this helps!

In Business Edition I don't have the Authentication Rules like I do in typical Unity Conneciton installs. Its got to be buried somewhere, but for the life of me, I can't find it.

Specifying Password, Logon, and Lockout Policies

In Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition (CMBE), you use Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration to specify password and account lockout policies for phone and web-tool access, and to specify the logon policy for web-tool access for all users who access Cisco Unity Connection voice messages.
