JSI Tip 2873. How can an Administrator change a users password, using the command prompt?

Open a CMD prompt and type:

net user <UserName> * /domain

You will be prompted to enter the new password and to retype it for confirmation.

You could also type:

net user <UserName> <NewPassword> /domain

This method does NOT require a confirming prompt, so it is also suitable for batch processing.
