Allowing Teachers the ability to change student passwords on a Vanilla Network
we are a secondary school and have recently moved away from RM CC3 to a Vanilla Windows Network (Windows 2008 R2 Servers, and windows 7 workstations). I've managed to replicate most things, but the teachers want a console and the appropriate tool to be able to reset students password.
Does anyone have any suggestions. I can give them elevated rights so that they can only change the password for students, but I dont really want them to logon to the server.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Delegate rights in ad and then create a custom MMC.

Delegate rights in AD [as above] and then use Password Control from WiseSoft:

password control is exactly the sort of thing i'm looking for. Thank you. i'm in the process of my second attempt at making an msi for the application ( I need to deploy to 300 machines. Do you have an Msi for this, I can get my hands on easily?

No MSI needed. Run it from a network share.

if it does run off a network share, you can probably push a shortcut round to start menus with Group Policy Preferences.

I used the burconix solution and made the changes in Active Directory. Works an absolute treats and saves me so much time. Here is a page with a little more indepth instructions on how to allow users to change network passwords.
Hope that is of some help to people.
