Just a small question:

I'm working on a PC (Win NT) loggod on as user Matthias to the DOMAIN

I would like to execute localy a python script to CHANGE THE PASSWORDS
2 Administrators (SuperUser, TechAdmin) which are remote (60 NT
Servers)on 60 different Domains where there is no user account

I thought of using the win32net.NetUserChangePassword to do the job.


            BUT THE REAL PROBLEM is that I do not have admin rights on
the other domains.

I could copy the script to all the Domains and execute it logged on as
Admin - but I would realy like to avoid this if possible.  Maybe there
is a way to send an authetification to the domains like
username:TechAdmin + the old passwort - (like a Su command) I'm not
sure..... -- ANY HELP

Would be absolutly create.
