    Check Passwords

    Odd question. I want to verify that all the passwords work for my controlled coursework accounts (I may have changed the odd one or two for various reasons and they may differ from my list) is there an easy way to verify a username and password en mass? Yes I could go an manually log in 40+ times but if there was a way I could script the check and do them in one go it would save time.

    Not sure about checking passwords en masse but you could set them all together using Active User Manager.

    Link: Mikey Magic's Web Site - Active User Manager

    We use it here and it has proved very useful.

    What I've done in the past is export the SAM database via CSVDE, wrote an awk script to format a unix style passwd file and chuck the whole thing at John The Cracker. I doubt it is worth this for 40 passwords but it was for 950.
