    AD Password Generation Help

    Hi All,

    Wondering if someone has come across this before or been asked by their school. One of the schools i look after want to be able to give students individual passwords and have them recorded in a spreadsheet or similar. Are there any software applications or scripts that can apply passwords from a spreadsheet to users in AD? Or will generate random passwords in english and apply to the users.

    EG 'whale12'

    I know it cannot be done with CSVDE and i already have a VBS to bulk change users passwords, but applies the same one for every user.

    Can anyone help??

    I know the school say they want the passwords in a spreadsheet - we did that and it didn't take long before some dopey teacher allowed the kids to get a copy and a lot of misery and hard work ensued!

    I use DSADD and DSMOD for batch scripting user creation and modification, this would allow you to generate a csv list of users with preferred unique passwords and then export to a batch file and execute?

    sample DSMOD:
    dsmod user "cn=Joe Bloggs, ou=13, ou=Students, ou=All Users, dc=domain, dc=local" -fax 1234

    sample DSADD:
    dsadd user "cn=Joe Bloggs, ou=13, ou=Students, ou=All Users, dc=domain, dc=local" -samid 13bloggsj -fn Joe -ln Bloggs -display "Joe Bloggs" -upn 13bloggsj@domain.local -email 13bloggsj@domain.co.uk -fax 1234 -pwd changeme

    I have all of this in an excel sheet using concatenate functions paired with data extracted from my MIS to generate the required info.
