I have over 100 users, and most of my users are mobile so really I do not want to ask them to change password at next login or at any other time.

    usrstat tool from the resource kit. then import to windows 2000 using the CSVDE Command

    Usrstat.exe    user name, full name, and last logon date and time
                  for each user account across all domain controllers.

    Use the following syntax to run the tool from a command prompt:
    csvde -i -f c:\filename.csv

    I think you'll find that ahmedbahgat is correct in the sense that the passwords are not stored anyware - only hashed values, so it would be impossible to directly export them,

    but this makes very interesting reading:

    A dictionary attack on any weak passwords will reveal them once the hashes are obtained.
