I would like to change the local admin password on about 250 workstations. I have an SMS server available, but have limited experience with SMS. I have also read some about the net.use command. We use to use custmgr until the password exceeded the character limit.

Change Local Administrator Passwords [ChgPassword.hta] is a hyper text application (HTA) that will assist you in automatically changing the password on the local administrator account on multiple machines at one time. It is very easy to use, you simply double-click the ChgPassword.hta file to start the application. Next...

    * Enter the NEW admin password
    * Select the target domain (from drop down list)
    * Select the target machines by choosing their parent OU (drop down list)
    * Click the [Change Password] button
