FREE Tool – Changing Local Administratior Passwords On Your Domain

Arian Eigen Heald Arian Eigen Heald Profile: Arian Eigen Heald

I just love VBS.

And I love the folks that share their tools, AND give us a nice interface AND allow us to push a report to a .csv file. So a BIG thank-you should go out to Jeffrey Hicks, who has his own site, anjd a helpful Blog.

He has a nifty free tool for changing the local Administrator password, PWDMan. This tool also reports on the password age. I’ve been looking for a tool like this to give to the admins I “visit” so that I don’t have to hear any more excuses about how hard it is to change that password periodically.

Jeffrey also has a whole page of VBS scripts and yes, Power Shell scripts, something I’m going to learn when I grow up.

I look for tools I can offer to help admins do their jobs, detect problems and provide easy ways to assess their own systems. I teach how to fish, and try to get buy-in so that the watchfulness happens all year long, not just during an audit.
