I have a test AD OU and I need to reset a select number of users to the same password.  Was hoping to get some help with some type of PowerShell command or tool to facilitate this.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you have a list of user names in a text file..
Import-Module Activedirectory
GC C:\input.txt | %{Set-ADAccountPassword $_ -Reset -NewPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText "p@ssw0rd" -Force)}

Open in new window

Sample input file
UserA
UserB
UserC

Open in new window

The shortest way, as usual, is batch: http://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Article/0000497
