Change AD password for test accounts


Recommended Posts

Hello,

edit:  Never mind, I think my problem is that the passwords were reset today and I think they are prevented from being reset more than once per day.  I'll try the _AD_ChangePassword again Monday.

 

I've got a bunch of production AD test accounts where the password expires every 60 days and there are way too many to change them manually.  Currently I have to create a ticket for the security team and wait in their Queue for them to update the passwords  but i'm wondering if there is a way for me to write a script to change the passwords since I know the old password as long as I do it before it expires.

 

I've tried the _AD_ChangePassword but that's not working as it seems to only be for the currently logged in user.  The _AD_SetPassword is only for Admins as there is no where to put the old password.

 

Any ideas?  the only thing i've found close is a powershell cmdlet "Set-ADAccountPassword" but I'm looking for AutoIt.

 

Thanks,

Mike

Correct:
_AD_ChangePasswort only works for the currently logged on user.
_AD_SetPassword allows to set the password for a user or computer (Parameter 1) by an admin.

I will have a look if it is possible to set the password for accounts that are "managed" by you.

"Delegation" is the magic word as described here (Source : The Real MCTS/MCITP Exam 70-647 Prep Kit, page 240):

I put this in a loop and was able to change the password for my 600 AD test accounts.  My Test accounts increment as gnrcTestAccount10001 > 10600 so I was able to loop and use $i to increment through the accounts.

Local $oUsr = ObjGet("WinNT://" & @LogonDomain & "/" & $sBulkPW_Account & $i & ",user")
        If @error Then
            MsgBox(262160,"Update Failed","Unable to access the account for " & $sBulkPW_Account & $i)
            ExitLoop
        EndIf

        $oUsr.ChangePassword($sBulkPW_PWcurrent, $sBulkPW_PWnew)
        If @error Then
            MsgBox(262160,"Update Failed","Unable to change the password for " & $sBulkPW_Account & $i)
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
