Not that I am aware of.

There is 3rd party software out there that will allow you to do this but I bet is costs serious $$$$$

Just out of curiosity, why cant you use Active Directory Users and Computers?

i'm not sure why you would want to do this but you could write an asp page to do this for you and host it on a server on your network. i dont have a page written off hand but it would be pretty easy to do.

And you say that it's impossible based on what knowledge? Why impossible, when I have one that does exactly that, right in front of my eyes?



Also a simple Google search will yield this, along with others:

I dont understand why you would want to do this through the web though, you could remote or vpn in...instead of opening up your whole active directory through the web.

Default Re: Change Password for User in Active Directory using Web Browser

It IS possible. with plain HTML and some vbscripting.

Add a form in a web page, with a textbox type'ed as password (to show only asterixes) and add a function to change the password.
It should look something like this:
Code:
Sub ChangePassword(sNewPassword)
   Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
   Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & objSysInfo.UserName)
   objUser.Password = sNewPassword
   objUser.SetInfo
   Set objUser = Nothing
   Set objSysInfo = Nothing
End Sub
Notes:
1. The IIS server hosting the web page should be a memeber in the Domain (same Domain where the user who wants to change his password resides)
2. The virtual directory should be set to Windows Authentication (this way the credentials running the script are the user's itself).
3. You should validate the password (as in input the password twice) on the Client-side (maybe use javascript).
4. Keep in mind that the user browsing the page will be able to change ONLY his own password.

Post here if you need the whole enchilada (I'll create the whole HTML page for you).

The IISADMPWD virtual directory allows users to change their account passwords remotely through IIS by means of ASP scripts.
