I have 1200 user on a network using win 2000 server. The folder containing all the passwords has been lost and I want to reset all the passwords on the system. Is there a random password generator that does this in win 2000 server. It will take for ever to do them one by one manually. So what I need is a password generator that will genrate password, reset them in active directory and have a facility where I can get a printout of all user names and new passwords.
Your help is much appreciated.

Here are links to a couple of scripts that do mass password resets, or could be modified to.
