Default [Q] Allow android pattern unlock from Exchange 2010 policies

Hi All,

Haven't been able to find an answer to this anywhere but I'm wanting to allow Pattern unlock to users with Android devices but not allow users to not set a secure unlock type.

Right now I've enforced password requirements but that only allows pin based unlocks not pattern or face.

Are there any options to enable other types of unlock without removing security requirements at all within Exchange 2010?

Searched everywhere can't find anything on the topic except for people trying to get around the security features.

Shameless bump, does anyone know if this is possible at all at this stage?

I have the same problem. Exchange dosen't seem to support anything else but PIN and Password security, but also android versions act differently - I was actually able to use pattern unlock while using 2.3.6 - after changing to 4.0.3 the option was grayed out (as a policy of exchange)

It would be great if anybody knows a solution.
