Set violation error message for password change

Customize the text displayed during password change if the operation fails because of a domain password policy violation.

For example, if the user attempts to enter a password that doesn't contain the minimum number of characters or doesn't meet complexity requirements, this message is displayed.

This group policy modifies the pam.policy.violation.mesg setting in the Centrify DirectControl configuration file.

On Mac, this group policy only customizes the text displayed by the adpasswd/passwd command.
