NT User Manager and Linux

I want to administer our network using linux (RedHat 5.1).  Is there a way to change and reset NT user passwords from linux?

Install rshsvc on your NT server (PDC, BDC).
Install ResKit on NT server (you need addusers, ntrights).
Now you may call addusers from linux via rsh.

A bit more clarification would have been nice, but very quick response
which clarification? Feel free to ask, it's for free now.

Linux# man rsh
M$   # notepad rshsvc.txt & explorer rshsvc.htm

You may also read tons off docs from M$, they are all more or less usefull and/or without errors. You may believe it ;-))

KISS - keep it short and simple
Go and check out http://www.cis.ksu.edu/~mikhail/Passwd/ Mikhail has written a script that syncs NT and Unix user accounts.  It shows you how to setup NT user accounts from the Unix side.  There is also a link to another system that works the other way (Maintain Unix from NT)
