    Mass Password Reset

    Is there a script or batch file available that will allow an administrator to reset a large amount of user passwords at the same time, rather then one at a time in user manager?

      You could write your own batch file utilizing the “net user” command.

      net user password
      net user password
      .
      .
      etc

      Add /domain at the end if you have a domain set up.

      While both the previous answers are good they don’t tell you how to do the change in large groups.
      The Resource Kit has a utility called “AddUser” that will dump all your user accounts to a spreadsheet.You can then “copy and paste” in the Password colum for as many users as you like.
      Then just import the spreadsheet back in and you’re done.
