If you have a listfile (c:\temp\list.txt) with the corresponding usernames and you would like to give them a random password, just take:
for /f %%a in (c:\temp\list.txt) do net user %% /random /active

Hey Gautum,

This will also set it where they have to change their password on next logon.

$newpwd = "NewPassword" -AsSecureString
$users = Get-Content C:\UserstoUnlock.txt | % { 
Unlock-ADAccount -Identity $_ -PassThru
Set-ADAccountPassword $_ -NewPassword $newpwd -Reset -PassThru | Set-ADuser -ChangePasswordAtLogon $True
}

Open in new window
