Powershell – One liner from one of the best

Let’s talk about re-setting passwords.

I know this is hardly news but, I saw this small one liner in a MVA video with Ashley McGlone and thought I would share it.
This is very useful for all junior team members suffering with the password change onslaught. That way, there’s no need to open AD Users and Computers, and when pressed for time, there is nothing quite like a quick and fast one liner.
 
Just put it in a .bat or .cmd file and distribute and start re-setting passwords.
@echo off&&powershell -NoE -C “&{ipmo ActiveDirectory;Set-ADAccountPassword -I ($u=Read-Host ‘User’) -R;Set-ADUser $u -Ch 1}”
