GUI for Active Directory Password Change

10 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm looking to create a GUI interface that users who's PC in not a member of the AD domain can put in there AD username and old password and enter a new one. I've never coded for this kind of thing...by that I mean an Active Directory call(s). Can I get some direction on what the code might look like to do something like this?

Thanks

:)

mmmm

user cannot change his password until an administrator release him

BUT

with the object, you can make a script that access to the active directory using the credentials of the admin, of better, an specific user that can just reset password

mm i re-begin my work on monday

i would just suggest it's not a good way for a user to play with those types of infos, for security reasons

arcker-

Thanks for the response...

If the user provides their username and password shouldn't they be able to reset the password without needing an admin account to do it?

first thing :

look on the forum for my "another active directory tool"

secundo :

look in the code to understand how to play with the AD object

third :

create an account at the root of the domain, that ca JUST change password

and with this account passed into credentials (using .openDSObject(host,user,password)

but i don't understand why you want to do this

(i'm french, so it's clearly easy to pass trough well)

arcker-

Currently our users do not login to our Active Directory and there are some political things going on at work that is slowing the process of syncronizing the password betweeen account is Novell NDS and accouts in AD.

I need to write a little utility that will allow the using to authenticate to their AD accounts and then change there passwords. Mainly this is so when there NDS password change on the Novell side I'll have a manual way the the users to keep there AD passwords set the same.

Does that make sense?

I had edited a response in this post as well as to my current situation...please see
