This may or may not be possible but i just recieved a request to go through and check the PASSWORD NEVER EXPIRES box on over 1,200 LAN ID's. This seems like it would take too long to go into each account tab and click that manually. Are there any batch jobs or programs that can do this for me?? This is on a Windows 2000 enviorment. Thnaks..

If it is a Windows 2000 ENVIRONMENT, does that mean you are using a Windows 2000 Domain? If it is an NT 4.0 Domain with Windows 2000 clients, you can user user Manager for Domains, select all users, properties, and check the box - DONE!

If you are using a Windows 2000 Domain with Active Directory, Just create a GPO and you can set that for all users instantly too...

Jmiller,
Yes on windows 2000 with active directory...Let me take take a look at that GPO. Never heard of it....I just started using Active Directory where i am at about two weeks ago...These are users that already exist (not creating new ones). Your saying that its possible to create job that will check that box in all the ID's in whatever directory i choose??

Thanks

not a job - just a setting that affects all users you want it to affect.

Would you like me to make you a step-by-step guide for it??

That would be cool of ya. My email is Evhmoon@yahoo.com

I am not doing everyone in the directory or even in the same directory..  Just selected users.  For Ex. I got a list of 1,200 sent to me this morning. 200 users  may be in one directory and etc...I can prolly have another list sent to me on friday for the smae amout or more so this seems like it may be a regular thing over the next 4 weeks or so.....

Thanks a bunch
