password management for a team of network administrators


Other then an Excel spreadsheet , I what to ask how do others manage sharing passwords between a team of network administrators?

for routers, switches, network service accounts, spam and a/v devices

It would be nice to find a product that restricts lets you set specific access for admins to user names and passwords .
Even better if it can track the history.

Thanks,

Kind of low tech but using keepass with different password files, master passwords and ntfs permissions for the different groupings of access. Suppose you could use file system auditing for access history.

In our environment we have government safes and some master passwords are kept in the safe.  The safe is checked twice a day for the envelopes (each account has an envelope) and there is limited access to the safe.  We basically follow federal regulations.

It is also an old school method of doing things but it works ok.

Thanks

This is a cool product that I've been looking into. Going to setup a demo but haven't had time yet so I can't tell you how well it works. Looks interesting though.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

part of iTIL process and compliance is to have a secure definitive library. We (admins) have access to a shared folder with secure files that are available only to certain admins. other admins have other secure locations and even though you cannot access those files if you are not in that group you are not even permitted to talk about them and ask for them (you can ask your manager). if you try to access something that you are not supposed to see you are warned once/interviewed and then fired if u do it again.
