Changing Guest/Administrator Accounts on

By mgonzales ·
Is there a way to change the guest account and administrators account on client machines that are running NT 4.0 workstation from a central location?

Anything would be appreciated.

Hello Mike

From your question I assume you just want to change the passwords on the accounts. A simple one line script can do the job. "net user AccountName NewPassword" You may have problems running the command because the user accounts don't have the priviledge. Try downloading a new program called ICentral which can deploy applications and scripts to your entire network of systems. The shareware version can only do 10 systems but if you contact me I'll give you a free full license with a 2 week timeout to try it out. You can find ICentral at www.kingsseed.com/icentral.

Have a great day
Dan

No this will not work...I need to change the password on 500 computers in the domain that are running Windows NT 4.0 Workstation.

I have some unix commands ported for NT. One of those is chuser. This will allow you to rename/change the password for user accounts across the network by placing it in a batch file. Contact me at mike@wrightma.com if you are interested. This is freeware, unlike some of the other solutions you have.

just open your usermanager. User - select domain - then type the ws-name (with \\!!!) in and you'll get to the local user-database.
hope this helps
