    You can install the Microsoft server 2003 AD tools on a workstation. Then make the librarian a member of the account operators group in AD and she can do all the password changes she wants with out doing any damage in AD and no special tools needed.

    Yes you can, but granting account operators gives other undesirable rights and complexity. This tool is designed to be foolproof (well, easy anyway).

    You can use delegation so they only have access to the OU you've given them access to manage cant you?

    Sure, but I still don't want somebody unlocking accounts that I've locked for a reason, for example.

    as it allows accounts to be enabled, a function that must not be available - password changes only

    Hi Powdarrmonkey,

    Any luck finding the sorce code? The PasswordReset.exe is so close to what I am looking to do. It just needs the ability to force a change of password at next logon.

    Cheers,

    Chris.
