Local Administrator password change through group policy for windows xp only


  • I need to change the password of local administrator of all the domain joined computers in my organization. I have tried the following:

    Computer Configuration ->  Preferences -> Control Panel Settings ->  Local Users and Groups - > Action -Update ..Change new password.

    But nothing seems to be working . I have Windows xp SP2 deployed in my organisation as client computers.

    I have also tried startup scripts but nothing seems to be working.

    Can someone provide me the detailed steps for the same.

    Also can anyone let me know whether for using Group Policy Preferences , what is the  prerequisite for xp machines?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!
