Try this from command line:

DSQUERY user "OU=myOU,OU=myUsers,DC=myDomain,DC=loc" -limit 0 | DSMOD user -pwd <insert new password here>

Open in new window

use Bulk AD Users from wisesoft
Add required users as a list input in tool and set password for all of them in one shot

Tool is freeware and can be run from 2003 \ 2008 \ 2012
