Windows Server Hacks: Resetting User Passwords
Subject:   How about Changing Permissions on AD Users?

As a network administrator for a fleet of oil tankers, I don't have the luxury of accessing AD Objects to perform tasks and I don't have folks with administrative rights onboard. So, is there a way, via command line, to modify the security permissions for specific User? For example I want the user called CAPT to have Read/Write Property, Read/Write Account Restrictions, and Reset Password on another user account call CLRK. I know how to do this in AD, but is there a tool to do this via command line? DSMOD doesn't seem to allow for changes to the security settings. Any ideas? Thanks, I'm desperate.

    I'm not sure how to do that from the command-line, but if user CLRK is in the SHIP organizational unit, then you could use the Delegation of Control wizard to delegate a custom task that would delegate those permissions to user CAPT, who could then reset CLRK's password using any of the methods outlined above.
