Is there any way (via a COM object or API call) to validate a NT user password against the domain or machine.
 
What I am looking for is the following:

x = CheckNTUserPassword("User", "PASSWORD", "DOMAIN1")
 
 I am not looking to obtain a password, just check to see if it is valid.

It would have to be for both. The DOMAIN parameter could be either the workstation or the domain name.
