    [FONT=&quot]Hi masters![/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Most domain users do not logon to domain at their workstation. So, they won’t have a chance on changing their password. I wanted to have a web base password management tool for our domain. The first thing I did was to follow these;

    Basic steps:
    A. The version of Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 that ships with Windows 2003 includes some Web-administration tools that are disabled by default. To enable the tools, perform the following steps:[/FONT]

    • [FONT=&quot]Run Internet Information Server (IIS) Management.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]Under the default website choose New->virtual Directory to start the wizard[/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]Name the site IISADMPWD[/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]The publish folder value is enter C:windowssystem32inetsrviisadmpwd[/FONT]
    • [FONT=&quot]For permissions make sure Read and Run scripts are checked[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]The page is accessible via http: //localhost/iisadmpwd/aexp2b.asp [/FONT][FONT=&quot]but when I tried to change password I get redirected and page error at [/FONT][FONT=&quot]https: //localhost/iisadmpwd/achg.asp?[/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    How do I make (or do I need to convert)[/FONT][FONT=&quot] http: //[/FONT][FONT=&quot]localhost/iisadmpwd/aexp2b.asp [/FONT][FONT=&quot]into[/FONT][FONT=&quot] https: //[/FONT][FONT=&quot]localhost/iisadmpwd/aexp2b.asp to be able to work?[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]By the way we don’t have an exchange yet.. But I hope it wouldn’t be a factor..

    Please enlighten me guys! thanks in advance..[/FONT]

    Re: Help Please! Web Base Domain user password management using IIS

    I’m a bit unclear as to what you’re trying to acheive.

    Firstly – your users aren’t logging on to the domain.. this is an issue in itself, enforce domain logons.
    Secondly, if they aren’t logging on using their domains, then why would you want them using a web interface to change their domain passwords (since they don’t use them)
    thirdly – if they don’t use the passwords anyway, how will tey remember to change them ?

    Actually these users are VIP’s. I’ve set their passwords to never expire. They are using our internal messaging which is active directory integrated…. maybe that’s why… :D

    Re: Help Please! Web Base Domain user password management using IIS

    What client are they using for accessing their mail? What about the’ messaging’ server that maintains the database?

    This is worth reviewing. You could enforce the password policy and request that users reset their passwords when they are due to expire.

    Re: Help Please! Web Base Domain user password management using IIS

    They were accessing mail via lotus notes client. (kinda old school :mrgreen:) and it’s not AD integrated.. The messaging was an open source server (openfire) binded to AD, with mysql database installed.

    quest password manager is good, but what about IIS? how can it work for me?

    If the passwords never expire, what do they need to change it for?

    Can they RDP to a server and change password that way?

    Passwords can become compromised, or a user may have reason to suspect their password may have been compromised. A user may have difficulty remembering their password without writing it down. In either of these situations, continuing to use the same password is a pretty bad idea.

    Re: Help Please! Web Base Domain user password management using IIS

    @ biggles77 and tehcamel – I’m sorry to disappoint guys, but as I was saying we have an Active Directory (LDAP) Integrated messaging system.. Most of the VIP are using their personal laptop and I can’t force them to join their computers to domain so they can log-on and change their password..

    Now, If I have a web-base active directory domain user password change utility, that will be a very big help for these users who do not log on to domain.. because their purpose is just to log on to our internal messaging..

    I was just thinking of implementing IIS.. As far as I know IIS supports a web-base domain password change… Have you guys tried using this without MS exchange in your production??…..

    @ gforceindustries – thanks a lot for the advice

    @ Ossian – no they can’t RDP to my server.

    IMHO you’re looking something like Forefront Identity Manager 2010
