Remote Password Change on Workgroup Servers and SSH access
Posted on 2010-09-04
This question has two parts:
1. I have a multi-customer environment with over 1000 servers (mix between 2k and 2k3 predominantly) Some genius sold and designed this environment without the prescence of active directory ... hence my quandry. As it stands today password changes are on a server by server basis. I have implemented pspassword on a couple of servers but this is still painful; I have been told that there is a way to automate with pspassword. Can someone please help and possibly show an example of how the text file should look and how to call it remotely.
2. To facilitate access to these servers I would like to install and configure SSH ( I know obsurd in a WIndows infrastructure) I have the Cygwin client downloaded but have very little experience with it. What is the easiest way to configure and possible automate the push of your key?
