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

You need to go and do some serious research before changing the time on the domain. Getting this wrong can have some dire consequences so make sure you know everything you can about this before taking action.

As far as I know there is no way to automate the change of local admin passwords centrally other using a system such MDT/WDS to roll out new images to the 250 clients.

If anyone knows differently please speak up as I have had this issue myself.

    I had a similar requirement once (regarding changing local admin passwords). It wasn't something I could automate through Windows or GPO, I ended up cobbling together a script that would use the list of computer account objects in AD, and go through to reset the local Administrator password on each one. I went through the Scripting Guys website at Microsoft to get help on this, and also through an old admin colleague. Be warned, it was not a perfect solution even then, there were firewall issues to consider and the script only worked perhaps 2/3 of the time at best.
