My name is Kelly, I am a Systems Administrator at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
I will tell you this now, this is in no way going to be used in malicious form at any point in time.

Recently it has become a problem that our users are making simple passwords, and even in one case, used the password "password".
We have begun weekly 'Jack the Ripper' cracks on our NIS password file against our users to check for lame/easy passwords.

However, I have not found a good tool to check out (crack) Active Directory user accounts on our domain.
I found a few tools that can whack away at the local SAM files on specific windows clients, but my question pertains more to all users in a specific list and or OU.

Am I being concise about what im looking for?
Is there a tool out there to do so?
