Automated password change in Netware 4.11
Posted on 1998-10-29
Since a few weeks I am a network administrator.
I would like to enhance security by automatically changing the user passwords twice a year.
Since we have over 100 users, I don't have the time to manually change each user's password.
So what I need is a simple way to change passwords (maybe a simple program that uses a
database file with user account and new password ?)
I tried to use the Winbatch language from WilsonWare, but
I have to supply the old password before I can issue a new one !
I know that , when logged in as supervisor or admin, you don't need to use the old password to enter
a new one, but I don't want to change all passwords manually. I want this done automatically !!!
Storing the passwords in a file is not a hole in security, because the file is protected by netware
