Administratively setting a password in AD with ADMOD

by @ 3:14 pm on 1/21/2006. Filed under tech

2 ways

1. admod -b some_dn unicodepwd::somepassword -kerbenc

2. admod -b some_dn #setpwd#::somepassword


The first uses straight LDAP, the second uses ADSI and will probably end up getting stripped out.


Change password is not currently supported, it is a bit of an interesting LDAP op and requires a delete of the old password with an add of the new password in the proper order.
