How would you do this via group policy?

Yes' group policy will be a good way. Or if you have SMS or other
similar tool, you can do as well. Hope that helps.

Hello List,

I am wondering if there is a good way to change the local admin password
on our corporate workstations.

Laptops that do not connect regularly will not get the change until they
do but I don't think that is a problem.  Is group policy a clean way to
do this?
