Password reset for bulk users in window 2008 AD

Hi

We use windows 2008 AD and i have created 150 users in aspecific OU. Is it possible to reset the passwords of all 150 users  at a time, rather than right clicking individual user and reseting the password. Any tutorials much appreciated.



thanks

Here's a great tool.  Or you can write a PS Script to do it as well.

You can also just highlight all the users and right click and select properties.  Then you get the properties for multiple items.  You can set "change password at next logon" See screenshot from my lab below.

You need to depend on script to do this task.

I hope you have this user accounts in an OU.

Below blog will help you to acheive this.

I would rather use Microsoft DS Tools available on any Domain Controller. Just check that running below command in command-line on a DC

dsquery user "ou=OULocation,dc=domain,dc=local" -name * -limit 0 | dsmod user -pwd InitialPassword -mustchpwd yes -canchpwd yes -disabled no

Open in new window


and all users should have changed password to initial. During the first logon they need to change it according to your domain password policy
