We have two different Admin passwords. One for laptops, which have a hostname starting with "id", and one for all desktops. The problem is, when I change the password with the DOS command "net user administrator <password>", it will change both passwords!
I wrote a little VBS script, which checks the hostname and decides which password to set. It is executed every time the user logs on.
Set wshnetwork=wscript.createobject("wscript.network") Dim usr, computer computer=wshnetwork.computername Set usr = GetObject("WinNT://" & computer &"/administrator,user") If LCase(Left(computer, 2)) = "id" Then usr.SetPassword "password" Else usr.SetPassword "other_password" End If wscript.quit ()
