    Advice on password changes using AD / GOOGLE

    Hi,

    We currently have all of our users in active directory. One of our schools will have mostly chromebooks next year. We are looking into how to deal with password changes with minimal windows machines on premise. Generally we reset every students password at the beginning of the year and the first time they log in it prompts them to change it. This doesn't happen with the chromebook using AD. Any ideas appreciated. Thanks.

    Else you can use microsoft dirsync to azure active directory and sync google apps to the azure active directory .

    Let me rephrase a bit.. Passwords are currently being SYNC'd from AD - > Google.. That is whenever someone changes their active directory password on a windows machine it changes it to google as well.. But this is a one way transfer.. Next year we wont have many windows machines in this school for them to be changing passwords on. So I was thinking some type of self service web password change, or somehow they can change their password on a chromebook.

    Simple PHP page with some LDAP Code and a form for username and new password, give it to office staff - job done.

    another idea is if you run Exchange with OWA they can change it in that (think its exchange 2010 SP2 onwards)
