Hi,

We are using Windows Server 2003 Domain controllers. Clients are running on Windows XP. In our active directory there is one OU which is having 1000 workstations. I need to change the local administrator password for all these workstations using AD GPO. Please suggest me how to achieve this task?

Thanks in advance.
