Hi,

I am helping my customer to go through a Novell to Microsoft change. This was a complete Novell house and the idea is to move all their current apps over to Microsoft equivilent. I have already set them up a AD structure and an exchange 2010 setup. The first phase is to move from GroupWise to Exchange, none of the client machines will be attached to the domain as yet however I do want to enfore a password change for all the AD users (accounts already setup in AD). I was hoping that when I launched outlook it would prompt me for old and new AD password however this is not the case. If I join a PC to the domain I get the prompt but none of the 500 odd PC's will be connected to the domain by the time I do the email migration. Can anyone help me out on how I can force the password change the first time users launch outlook?

Thanks

We did this exact same thing at our company about a year ago.

We had a consultant.

It was set up so that all we had to do was open the Outlook configuration and check for the user and migrate the mailbox.

Very simple.

I can get you the info if you like?

If you have anything that would help me here I would be very grateful! I need to have the outlook deployment almost completely automated so I set the first-reg key to 0 then get it to call my .prf file which holds the info on the exchange server and all that works really well its just this password change that's a bit of a brick wall just now.

I am not even sure it can be done because the machines aren't part of the domain but I am hopefully someone out there would've come across this before.

Thank you!
