Testing Big Sur with my existing Prestage enrollment and when I log in with the local admin account that is created by the prestage I am forced to change the password. No new password is accepted no matter what I try, so I can't log in. No error about complexity, the Reset Password box simply shakes.
This has not occurred when I used this prestage on 10.13 or 10.14. I only have minimum passcode length and maximum passcode age set in the prestage profile.

I'm facing the same issue on our Big Sur Machines. Tried looking into your fix but I'm not seeing a "Maximum Passcode Length." Rather, I see "Minimum Passcode Length" which I had turned on thus I attempted to turn off that setting in a test policy, scoped to my Big Sur machine and still no luck. Any attempt to log into the management account causes macOS to prompt for a password reset.
