Can't win, just have to choose the lesser of two evils.

so you set the passwords and hand them out?  You could setup a group policy
and then make the users manage their own.  then you have to deal with the "I
changed my password but forgot it and can't get in" problems but that may
still be easier than dictating them to your users.

Hey all, I am nearing a time when once again, I need to do a password change
for my company.

Is there any password automation out there, that will allow me to setup a
password structure, changes the passwords and give me a report of the new
ones? The company is getting so big, Just looking for a way of automating it
yet maintaining a password structure. I am one person managing two
departments and too many servers and workstations :)

I guess what I am asking is, what is the easiest way to roll out new
passwords other than manually entering them.

There has to be something out there like that...

Thanks
