Using NewSID/PSExec in NDS network

We would like to use the sysinternal tools NewSID and PSExec to make network-wide administrator password changes and deal with a handful of machines deployed with cloned images and unchanged SID.  Before I spend a much more time on testing, does anyone have any words of wisdom or lessons learned for use on a Novell network.  Do I have a workaround for the domain administrator credentials?  We have standardized admin/administrator logins on the local machines.
Thank you in advance for any input.

Zenworks for Desktops is great for this kind of thing, if you have it.

If you don't, and want a quick and dirty way to handle this, you might want to try AutoIt Script, a scripting language for Windows that allows you to run commands, change settings, and do various other things with a very easy VB-like programming language. You can compile AutoIt scripts into encrypted stand-alone executables to protect login information.

Thank you for your suggestions.  We do not have Zen for Desktops initiated so have purchased a 3rd party app to use for our changes for now.
