I'm managing an Server 2003 domain, client computers are Windows XP Pro and Vista Business. To simplify administration we decided to set up the same local administrator password in all computers and I guess that the best way to do that is using a GPO, so I need the code for the script.

I already have some samples, but I need the expert's oppinion to choose the simplest and effective.

Thanks in advance

The easiest way I can think of is
NET USER Administrator yourpa55Word
However, one word of caution, Users can see Group Policy Objects if they know where to look.  You might like to wrap your script up into something a little less readable eg a batch to exe program.
