are all of the computers on a domain in which you have access to group policy? do you want to apply the password to all computers in the AD? or just specific ones? once you answer that i will give you a solution.

Yes you can do this via the logon script.
net user "username" "password"
this will set the indicated user password to what you have selected. No quotes BTW. Course you have to be able t run this with admin rights. That would require a better script than just a batch file. Something along the lines of kix.

ot you can use the resource kit utility cusrmgr.exe

it allows you to reset passwords on remote machines from your workstation.

If you run a startup script, then you don't need to grant your end users admin rights. Here's a couple of links you may wish to refer to:

But it's worth remembering that the password value will wind up being stored in clear text in the script, so there can be a security hole.

Alternatively, I use a product called Hyena to manage AD, and it allows you to change password en masse (amongst lots of other things). It's a powerful management tool and I think relatively cheap. Look up the product at this link:

Good luck!
