Unique Local Admin Account Password for each Workstation/Server
Posted on 2009-07-01
I am using Group Policy Preferences to create a local user on each workstation (let's call it USERA), and want to assign a unique password per machine.
I would like to somehow via script or another method, have a unique password set per machine, and have this password written to a UNC path. I would also like this password to be automatically changed at an interval of 80 days, and have the file at the UNC path updated but maintain a password history. Such as machinea.txt will retain the password history of the account for troubleshooting purposes if necessary.
Also, it would be nice if this change can be initiated somehow, incase we need to provide the password on a temp basis to a user. After that need has passed, we can run the script to have the password changed and the file at the UNC path updated.
Users are not local admins, and the OS will be Vista/XP
