Azure VM Password restrictions

Whenever you are creating an Azure VM via Azure CLI you might have encountered an issue like the one shown below

Password must have the 3 of the following: 1 lower case character, 1 upper case character, 1 number and 1 special character
Password length must be between 12 and 123

The above error messages occurs because Azure has inbuilt restrictions for the password on the admin account that is being created and the Password restrictions are as follows

  • Password length must be 12 and 123
  • Password should have 1 lowercase character
  • Password should have 1 uppercase character
  • Password should have 1 special character
  • Password should not be same as username
