    Password settings

    Is there any way I can add something to the logon script to set the account password to "does not change"?

    More info?

    If using AD go on the account tab and tick user cannot change password and password never expires

    Thats an active directory attribute, you can use something like admodify to change it for a load of users in one go.

    Sorry, I should have said I need to do it for 600 accounts so rather not reset each one individually.

    As Dom said but select all your users (either in the OU or run a query) Right click, properties etc etc

    Admodify did the trick. Great tool - thanks.

    I'm still climbing the slippery slope on the AD learning curve. I didn't realise you could select multiple user properties. Thanks for that info as well.
