Change eDir password via command line on client PC

Hey all,

I need to find a way to change a users pasword via a command line.

need to simplify a password change for users, and be able to launch it from the login script.

ideally launching the "Novell Password Administration" utility from the nwtray.exe....

was hoping there might be some switches for the nwtray.exe..

cheers,

Re: Change eDir password via command line on client PC

Hey Anders,

Thanks heaps for the heads up!
Haven't had a chance to test it fully yet but looks great!
Im hoping that i might be able to grey out some of the check boxes on the right to restrict access a little more...
But looks pretty much is exactly what i was looking for! 😉

cheers again,
Leon
