Hi folks,

Well I gotta a problem on my Windows2000 server. What I need to do is: change the user password through the command line. I have tried "net" command and many others located on %systemroot%\system32 folder, but none worked.

Does anybody have a clue???
I have access to the Administrator's Account. How can I change any user password without his/her current password?

Thanks

Edward

Just to confirm, you tried the command as shown below while logged in as an administrator with rights to change domain passwords, such as a domain admin?

net user username newpassword /domainname

If it's not the user's domain password and is instead a local account, you have to be at the computer in question and type the above without the /domainname.  Otherwise, you should be able to run that command from anywhere on the domain.
