    Question Password resets using Windows 7

    How have people delegated control for password resets under Windows 7? Previously I just installed Adminpak.msi via GPO and used a custom MMC after delegating the control in AD.

    The problem I have under 7 is that the RSAT is installed via a MSP and then you have to enable the relevant tools and then you need the MMC. How am I going to easily deploy this?

    Am I going about this all wrong?

    Would a web based password reset tool help?

    Hi

    I am using a batch script to install the required AD tools on staff computers. You need to download the x86fre_GRMRSAT_MSU.msu from Microsoft and place it in a location the computers have read access to. Then run the following commands once on each computer you want to install ADUaC on. My batch script look like this.

    Script Start - InstallADUaC.bat

    c:\Windows\System32\wusa.exe "\\...path to msu.....\x86fre_GRMRSAT_MSU.msu" /quiet /norestart
    dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:RemoteServerAdministrationTools
    dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles
    dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles-AD
    dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles-AD-DS
    dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:RemoteServerAdministrationTools-Roles-AD-DS-SnapIns

    Script End

    I use a Specops Deploy to deploy applications. I use this to target what computers run the batch file and to make sure it only runs once. If you application deployment system does not support deploying/running batch file you could use a start-up script. You would just need to add some logic to make sure it only runs once.

    If you want more information about Specops Deploy I have talked about it in this post.

    Suggestions for new deployment software

    Thanks
    Edd
