    Changing passwords for SIMS users by script

    As System Manager 7 is a long way off (relatively speaking)

    Does anyone use/have any scripts they use to change passwords in SIMS.

    The kind of thing I was thinking of:

    • To have a script run which will reset passwords monthly and create a list of the new passwords in a text file.

    • To have a script that would change a singe user password which is constant in several school databases


    In a search before postin DBPwdChg.exe came up - anyone know what this does?

    It is one thing that Sims lacks, however I have read articles (on these forums) whereby you can link the Sims logon with Active Directory. Active Directory does allow you to force users to reset their password at first logon or whenever necessary.
