Is there any way to know the passwords of a users NT Login

Hi,

Is there any way to know the passwords of a users NT Login.Actually this is not to hack any login.I am the admin and i can always reset the password of any user from ads.Some users say that the passwords are automatically changing and they are not able to login to the systems.I want to see if the password they say and the changed passwords are same or is there really some problem going on.

Regards
Sharath

One thing to check is if the passwords are stored using reversible encryption.  if so then it is possible that rogue software could be exploiting this.

I don't think you would be able to know the passwords.
Also it might against the MS license agreement.

without using a "cracking" tool on your SAM you will not know the passwords. using a tool like that takes a very long time to retrieve passwords.

there are tools to "extract" passwords from the SAM
Takes a long time though, they use brute force etc
L0phtCrack (LC5) is one of them
