Resetting several Linux account passwords on several systems using Windows ssh


Hi all,

I've found myself in a position were I will need to reset hundreds of Linux account passwords on different servers, including 50 personal accounts. This is insane. I have the misfortune of having to use a windows client to do the SSH portion.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can make a script for this that will work with the Putty command line?

Run your script from one of them servers?
Install QEmu, VMware, Virtualbox and run from there?
* A script that runs from PuTTY (or probably more appropriately: Plink, PuTTYCS or ExtraPuTTY) doesn't conform to this forums standards (GNU/Linux). If your main problem is you can't use GNU/Linux in any way then this thread should be moved to /General where all uncategorised or mcrsft questions go.
