How is it possible to change information general to all users in Windows NT 4.0 without doing it one by one for each users e.g to set account expiration date for all users.

In User Manager for Domains, simply select (CTRL-Click) all the users whose attributes you want to change, then click File, Properties from the menu bar. (You can't change ALL properties this way, but most of them). Be careful doing this: if you select all users, and change something liket the the login times or file access rights, you may inadvertantly change the rights for a user like administrator, or a system account.

These sorts of settings can be changed en masse by selecting a number of accounts at once, and then going to User, Properties. You will then be editing the properties for the list of selected users. Use Shift-click or Ctrl-click to select groups of users. Hope this helps!

YOU CAN CHANGE CERTAIN PROPERTIES BY SELECTING MULTILPLE USERS ATONCE AND GOING TO PROPERTIES.HOWEVER PROPERTIES SUCH AS DESCRIPTION,GROUPS,MACHINES ONTO WHICH THE SELECTED GROUPS LOGON TO ,ACCOUNT EXPIRATIONETC, CAN BE CHANGED FOR ALL THE SELECTED USERS AT THE SAME TIME.AS FAR AS PASSWORD POLICIES ARE CONCERNED WHENEVER U MAKE ANY CHANGES TO THE PASSWORD POLICY IT BY DEFAULT APPLIES TO ALL THE USERS EVEN IF THEY ARE NOT SELECTED.THE ONLY WAY THAT U CA PREVENT AN USER'S PASSWORD FROM EXPIRING IS BY SELECTING PASSWORD NEVER EXPIRES FROM THAT USERS PROPERTIES MENU . HOPE THAT CLEARED UR DOUBTS
