Hi, could one of you tell me how i can see when a password was changed.

we are moving to 2003 soon, and in order to co exist and get users used to new passwords, we are getting them to change them early.

but i need to know if they have changed them or not.

    Hi mhamer,
    Why not set each password to 'User must change password at next login'
    that way, you will know at least that those who have logged in have changed their passwords.

    Use a network scanner to and it will tell you the passoword age of NT machines.  I use GFI's Landguard and it gives me this information...I'll try and post a link :)

    LanGuard has gotten expensive!

    They do offer a 30 trial that can be download from here

    It will give you password age :)

    I would set the password expiration to somethign like 1 or 2 days.  Then everyone will be forced to change on the same day.  At the end of that  day change it back to 30 days or whatever you have your password life set to previously. Most painless and nothign to install.  A couple clicks and your done?
