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.

It isn't possible out-of-the-box on Windows 2003 I think. Windows 2008 it is possible. However maybe this link can help you: http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/30978042/change-local-admin-password-with-gpo.aspx
