    very cool. It's nice when real shortcomings of the tool get resolved.

    One question though. The pulledown for "select Local User's Group", is that list populated from the actual groups on your target endpoint(s), or is it just the builtin Windows groups (Adminstrators, Users, etc) ?

    Trying this out as it would be very useful for me. My test PC is failing at the below when attempting to reset a password.
    Action Script Execution Detail

    Completed parameter "OPENSSL_FOLDER" = "{pathname of parent folder of client}\openSSL\bin"
    Failed parameter "OPENSSL_FOLDER" = "{pathname of parent folder of client}\openSSL\bin"
    delete __createfile
    delete "{parameter "OPENSSL_FOLDER"}\dat64.ssl"
    // Match encrypted string to client

    Seems to be a duplicate "parameter "OPENSSL_FOLDER" = "{pathname of parent folder of client}\openSSL\bin" ", which probably causes an error. I will fix this, but in the mean time you can remove that line by hand.

    Let me know if that doesn't fix the problem.

      Zak,

      I have used Local User Management dashboard successfully do a number of password changes. While it is a great start, it does have some pain points. The ability to multi-select, target groups, and filter would be excellent.

      Bonus for advanced options such as the ability to choose OpenSSL parameters such as cypher used, bit strength, etc.

      Thanks,

      Jon
