I am currently got an unusual problem as I have created a security group to reset passwords for a help desk group. I have found however that certain accounts cant have there passwords reset and this is due to the fact that the users account security setting doesnt have inheritance on. This is strange as I have created a lot of them and why this has switched off puzzles me. Also now that I have identified that this is the case how can I automate a task to go round all the accounts and switch inheritance on?
