I just enabled some password policies on a windows server, and I would like to have everyone prompted the next time they sign in to update their password. Is there a way I can do this once, without setting passwords to expire every X days?

I am afraid you need to turn on "password expire in X days" switch. You can turn it off after people change their password.

Yes, just highlight the users in question (you probably don't want to do this with service accounts ...) in the ADUC MMC, right-click the bunch and choose "Properties", go to the Account tab, check both boxes in front of "User must change pasword during next logon".
