bit of a worry tested as a staff member when i type in administrator in the username box and change password it changes there password even tho they cannot see the ou
localzuks when i enter say a user that isnt in the ou i specify in the username field and press reset it does reset the password.
That's a little odd! I'll check it and see why its doing that. The code isn't exactly complex, it should only be connecting to the DC at the OU level specified.
Right, checked it over. It was due to a silly bit of coding on my behalf - the OU wasn't being passed, just the AD server.
Attached is a new version, with this fixed.
@localzuk it's probably best i create another thread or something with my program, otherwise providing help for two different programs in one thread might get a bit confusing.
of course it also means i can start the smear compaign against you in my thread as you are now a rival company :p
I just installed your reset password program - its great thanks, my school likes it. however, one little problem.
when i choose a student from the dropdown list and click reset (but not if you just type in the username and click reset) it brings up the following error message:
"Error: A device attached to the system is not functioning"
The password is still changed, but the message that confirms this doesnt appear. do you know how to fix it? or what may be causing it?
Running a domain on 2008 r2, and running the program from 32 bit win 7 machines
I've just done a bit of a rewrite, changing the code to use the newer ways of editing domain accounts, reduced the number of config lines by one (and altered one) etc...
If you swap to this one, please ensure you update the config file to use the full domain (and not the short domain as before).
localzuk, I like your app. I am trying the latest version. I have set everything up as per the readme. But I just keep getting an error saying the server is not operational. Yet the previous version I used worked, well with an error. But it did reset the password. Just did not force change password at next logon. Any ideas?
