Self service password reset

3 w2k Dc's, 2 W2k3 Dc's.  Xp Sp2 clients.  All users have submitted answers to 5 security questions which have been added to the Extension attributes in AD (Exch2k3 installed).  OU delegation to a service account to reset password for each user account & to read Extension attributes of Ad object.  Using ADSI (ADO ?) can an ASP be created so that if user locks account/forgets password they can access this page on intranet (as all would be internal traffic) enter their FQDN or just Pre-Windows logon & email address and select a secret question to answer and if successful with answer they are prompted to enter new password?  Obvioulsy logging would be required such as IP & user name of computer being used, time & date all to be emailed to an admin and to user

So is this password reset for a web application? Or are you talking about the AD user password? If that's the case, how is the user able to access this "rest pw" page if they are unable to log on the computer in the first place? If you can clear it up, I think we may be of more assistance =)

Microsoft Indentity Integration Server can implement this.

Thinkpaper - we have a large number of computers that logon using a generic account with very restricted permnissions allowing access only to intranet and another few inhouse applications.  So they would use one of these.

PowerIT - There would be a cost involved with Identity Integration Server wouldn't there?

Yes. Having your helpdesk manually reset passwords is also a cost. You'll have to verify which one outweighs the other.

Thats the idea of having the self service intranet page though, particularly as we are 24/7.  I will obvioulsly investigate MIIS

Sorry, after reading it again my comment sounded a bit patronizing. It was not meant that way, if course you realize why you are investigating such a project.

Apologies for not coming back sooner.
Although the question didn't exactly specify 'no cost' software, this was what I was looking for.  I have looked at MIIS & Novell products.  Think I'll just work on my existing code.
I think rather than no-one (?) get the points I'm happy to split them between the people that did take the effort to post, if thats ok now?

Thanks Coch, you can do the split at your own leisure as long as the question has not been closed.
