  • change local admin pw via gpo?

    okay, i googled around and also searched here and it looks like 3rd party is the only way to push out new local admin pw's to workstations. most notably, desktop standard's 'policy maker standard' looks like the tool to use.

    but, a lot of the info out there looks like it might be a bit dated. so, i ask: is there any way to push out new a local admin pw via gpo?

    thx!

    edit: btw, i know i can do this with a script. i'm just not that skilled at scripting.

    I don't know if there is a way with GPO's or not, but I have found a nice tool that is part of the PSTOOLS kit, it is called pspasswd. You can run this utility from the command line and specify a text document with all of your desktop computer names in it. This utility will connect remotely to each machine one by one and change the admin password for you. This can be downloaded from Here
    Hope that helps! Oh and these tools are free If you need any help with this setup let me know.
