I need to extract all users passwords for our next project. How can I extract them from either their workstations or from Active Directory? We are on AD 2003. We have two domain controllers.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I recently needed to do the same thing I used a program called LophtCrack. I had to export the sam database to another computer and run it.

    What you want to do is basically a cracking procedure. If you can do it, so can others, so, no point of having security if it isn't protecting what it was set up to protect.. Passwords are meant to be encrypted and hidden from the casual browsing of directories, to prevent this sort of activity. Do not understand why you have to extract passwords. If you have them you can't use them for long, as users will/should change them after a set time period anyway. If you are creating something new, and want their passwords, as a starting point, why not just assign new user passwords in the new project, and make the user change it on first use. Normal AD procedure.

    I agree with Chippy. Password are meant not to be retrieved. If they are lost or forgotten they can be re-set. Otherwise it defeats the purpose . If I or anyone else knew what system and where they are located you system is vulnerable.
