Is it possible to change all user permissions at once.  I want to allow all users to change password and require the password expires at set intervals.  I am running Windows Server 2003 for Small Business Server.

I know this can be done on Windows 2003 Enterprise.  Using Active Directory Users and Computers you can select multiple user objects and change certain properties.  Password settings and Account expirations are two of those properties.

For those without Win2k3 ADUC, you can use ADModify to do this as well.  Download here:

You will need version 2.0 and .NET framework installed.
