change passwd problem against a user
 
Dear Friends ,

I am using now Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 . Here I add a user suppose john . Now user "john" want to change his password.
For this reason he enter Linux pc using his user name . But when he is going to change his passwd then he write in command mode the following command :

[john@~]$passwd
[john@~]BAD PASSWORD:it is too symplistic/systematic

we try several times but cannot solve this problem . Now plz tell me , when a user want to change his passwd using his user name , then what is the method to do it ?

I think this says enough. Ordinary user must enter some "sophisticated" password with upper/lower characters and other typing characters.

To change password to something simple, root must do it.
