    Bulk password reset to a default?

    Does anyone know a way in Server 2003 of doing a bulk password set for specific users or a particular OU?

    I can obviously bulk expire passwords, and have all users reset them, but I need to say

    Set all staff passwords to Monday, than have all staff reset their passwords during a training session during INSET

    Any help appreciated

    If you search these very forums you'll find a freebie bit of software called (funnily enough) Bulk Password Control. I believe the author is a member of Edugeek. very useful bit of kit and I'm gonna have to remember to send a donation his way at some point!
