how to change my password on remote maschines?
Posted on 2011-03-09
i do have a user on a lot of system. And I have to change the password for this user on all systems. How could I do this using a (windows) script?
At the moment I do have a .bat file which calls putty for each server, but I have to enter
on every server.
There is no way to use certificates.. and I am not root, so
echo user:password | /usr/sbin/chpasswd
echo -e "newpasswd\nnewpasswd" | (passwd user)
does not work for me (as I could see).
Anybody any idea how to change the password for my remote user running a windows script.
At the moment I am testing with expect and ActiveTcl, but I am not sure if this leads to what I want, because ActiveTcl must be installed...
I hope for a batch file (where to enter user and (old/new) password) starting plink on a list of servers and changes the password.
