Cannot change password on CBS250 switch

Hey,

I simply cannot change a password on the CBS250-8T-D in my lab. No matter what password I try (I tried a bunch ranging between 10 and 14 characters), I'm always getting

Password rejected - Passwords must not match words in the dictionary, and must not contain commonly used passwords.

Complexity settings are configured pretty liberal - max length=8, min-classes=3, no-repeat=3, and of course all the passwords I tried satisfy these requirements.

Given that it's a lab, I tried to disable the complexity requirements altogether by running

no passwords complexity enable

command, as suggested by this article, but it returns

% Unrecognized command

and nothing changes.

I'm running latest FW (3.2.0.84), which I just updated to recently. I'm now wondering, if it's a bug in the new FW, as I was always able to change passwords with the old FW (3.1.1.7).

Anybody else experiencing these issues?

Thanks,
Alex.
