Is there a way for me to push out a GPO that will enable the local administrator account with the same password throughout my domain on Win 7 computers? If not, can I use powershell to do this & set the same password for all accounts? All of these computers are on a Windows 2008 domain.

The MS AD team also talked about this a few weeks ago, see the question about halfway down   http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2010/10/29/friday-mail-sack-not-particularly-terrifying-edition.aspx
