Force password change at next logon

By jengianfrancesco ·
I want to be able to force a password change at next logon for all 600 of our employees without having to go into each account manually to do this.

THis is a win 2000 AD environment.

You could create a account policy that has everyone password changing in 5 days or whatever day you need it changed on. After that you can change it back whatever your policy is.

You can use LDIFDE to do this. You need to use LDIFDE because you are trying to change an attribute of an object. Make sure that you specify the attribute correctly when you are setting up the LDIFDE file. See http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/home/using/productdoc/en/default.asp?url=/WINDOWSXP/home/using/productdoc/en/ldifde.as for details regarding usage.

An old type fix but this will work. Put all users that need to change PW in a security group. Go to the old USER MANAGER from the NT srvtools (Win2K User Manager will not work). Click File/Select Users and choose the group you made. All users will be selected, press enter. When the dialog box shows, check Change PW at next logon until it is white with a check mark. I uses this technique at a school with 6,000 users to affect changes. Srv2K3 has a multiple update feature. Win2K does not.
