In my job, I have to do a lot of user password resets for multiple clients, on multiple servers. I was wondering if there was a tool or an application that can be made, or already has been made, to enter in the information and have it do it over multiple servers?

Example:

YOUR ID: johndoe
CLIENT ID: janedoe
Machine(s): server1, server2, server3, server4
YOUR PASS: password
NEW PASS: password


To do this manually, you'd have to enter something like this:

>ssh server1
(password prompt)
>sudo /usr/bin/passwd (userID)
(password prompt)
>exit

>ssh server2
(password prompt)
>sudo /usr/bin/passwd (userID)
(password prompt)
>exit

And so on. So if there is anyway to code this to work on Linux/Unix machines I'd really appreciate the help, and so would my co-workers.

Any questions, feel free to send me a PM.

Miz

Unfortunately, we work on Windows platform systems and use PuTTY to connect to the servers. I read through the information and it looks like this needs to be both installed and run from a Linux/Unix system. I appreciate the link though. Cool

Any Linux/Unix shell scripters out there that can help me create a mass password tool? thumbs up
