    Free self-service password resets for students or teachers?

    Is there any such method so we can give teachers the power to reset a student's forgotten password? We get many students "forgetting" them and it's a daily bother. I've seen some paid options. Is there a free way, like a VB program that asks a teacher to enter the student's username, and when they click Reset, it automatically sets their password to "password" and will ask the student to change it on next logon?

    It should not allow teachers to reset domain admin's passwords though!

    security group to allow teachers to reset passwords ( delegation of control or delegating access rights ) then, you would only delegate access rights so teachers could only reset student passwords and not other teachers or other members of staffs passwords etc --> Password Control

    Registration is free, downloads and to use is free.

    security group wise or delegation wise ( what do you have to do exactly so it only allows teachers access rights to reset student passwords only ?

    This is the one that I used: Reset Student User Password Free Tool for Schools, Business and Education - Burconix
    It will run from a share and has some nice options.

    This one looks brilliant! I've tried the Password Control one from Wisesoft but am not sure how to lock down options in the program so teachers don't fiddle with them.

    But this Burconix one looks very clean, simple, and restrictable. Exactly what we're after. Thanks all!

    We are now using the Burconix one above. Is there any way to log which teacher resets which account?

    I created a custom MMC for ours that is limited to the students OU, then in AD delegate access to reset passwords only to the teachers security group. How to create custom Microsoft Management Consoles (MMC’s) for managing servers has a step by step guide you can base it off, also goes into making it user mode so they cannot add more features to it or move out of the students OU.

    If you're using Windows 7 they teachers machines will need RSAT installed Download: Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 with SP1 - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details with the active directory option turned on in windows features, or with XP the server administrator tools Download: Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details
