I have Windows 2003 domain (perhaps will be 2008 domian in the coming year) and I want to know what people use for password management.  My biggest need right now is being able to run a report on all users in AD to show me when they last changed their password, and how long before it expires.  Any other features are a plus, but password aging reports is the big one.

You can use for that Microsoft DS Tools,
ADFind from
http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm
or
Quest PowerShell cmd-lets
http://www.quest.com/powershell/activeroles-server.aspx
or if it's 2008 R2
native PowerShell commands

I agree with iSiek. The quest AD cmdlets are a great tool. You can use something like this to get a report for user passwords

get-qaduser -sizelimit 0 | Select Name, PasswordLastset, PasswordAge, PasswordExpires | Export-csv c:\userspasswords.csv

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
