I just applied the dsquery user command to apply the "Password never expires" for all my user accounts on my DC. I want to be able to do the same for all the accounts for the "User cannot change password" attribute. Can someone give me the command for that please.

Does it have to be with command line?
Otherwise, in Active Directory you can make a query.

Query root: *.local
Define query: you could use: Name - Is Not - zzzzzz.
That would give all the users.

Select them all, right click, properties and change the desired settings.
If you change the password settings on the Account tab don't forget to check both checkboxes.

You can do this via powershell very easily. Use the below command..
Import-module activedirectory
Get-ADUser -filter * | Set-ADUser -CannotChangePassword $true

Open in new window
