  • Changing a domain password withour being on domain

    I have been searching for this, and haven't found a complete answer.

    This are the facts: my domain policies ask me to change for my password every month. I use this password to access my domain reources like network storage and network printers.

    My problem is: my laptop computer is not signed into domain, so I only attach to domain resources by mapping drives and installing domain printers, but every time my password expires, I can't (obviously) access to my domain resources.

    My question is: how can I change my domain password from my computer? I use XP with welcome screen and fast user swithing turned on.


    Thanks!!!

    I've never had to deal with this but you might want to take a look at:

    It might help but as i dont have you scenario in front of me to try i cant say whether it will work or not.

    Hope it does!!

      Great!

      Hey! This is a really useful thing. I have used it from two computers that are not signed on the domain, so I believe that this is what I was searching for... I hope that it will work once my password expires. I will be announcing it, or maybe I will just put it on my startup folder as a .cmd so it changes it every day as to comply with the policy. Thanks!

        Excellent stuff. Hope it still works when your password expires.
