Hello
I want to force 170 users to "Change there password at next login" in active directory.
What is the easiest and quickest way to do this without setting each account one at a time ?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can do it without script. And it will take just a minute (if you do not have a lot of OUs with users).
Just do to AD users and computers, select multiple users and right click the properties. There should be an option (tick box) to force user to change pass on next logon

With script, you can achieve it.

Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://cn=username,ou=ouname,dc=MyDomain,dc=com")
objUser.pwdLastSet = 0
objUser.SetInfo

But, you need to get OU details correctly for LDAp search

just go to appropriate OU and press ctrl+a to select all users (objects) in that OU, or choose by holding ctrl and left clicking on users you want to select or 3th option is to click on a first user in an OU, hold shift and right click on the last user

If uses exists in same OU, then you can just select multiple user by mouse or by keyboard, and check property on right click, and select option for 'changing password on next logon'.

Just run one saved query in active directory users and computers

It will give you all users in entire domain
http://anandthearchitect.com/2008/07/02/list-all-active-users-in-a-domain/

Just select all users by selecting ctrl+A and then remove unwanted users by holding down Ctrl key and deselecting one by one

right click and select properties and go to account tab

There you will have to select extreme left checkbox corresponds to "User must change password at next logon" and then inside checkbox will be enabled. U need to select that checkbox as well

That's all

Now each user is forced to change password at next logon
