  • Change local admin account password

    I want to change the local admin password on my NT domain Win 2k & XP workstations. Is there a way to do it remotely with Hyena?

    Re: Change local admin account password

    You can do this by selecting your computers in Hyena's right window, then right-click and choose More Functions->Set Account Password. Fill in the information and click OK.

          Double-clicking on an object in the left window will show the sub-objects in the right window. So, for example if you double-click on the Servers object, it will list the servers in the right window. Same thing for Domain Controllers, Computers, or even OUs containing computers or users.

            Your directions work great for stuff participating in our AD domain, but I was pounding my head forever because I was trying to get 40 servers in a "Microsoft Windows Network" to populate in the right pane.

            Double-clicking their workgroup name does NOT get them in the right pane. This is a security thing right? Is their a way to authenticate to them so I can change their local admin password - all 40 at once? They all have the same username\pwd.

            **EDIT** I found your response in another thread regarding Servers in a workgroup.
